This latest release from Master features a pair of 1/24 British Mk 2 Browning .303 caliber (7,7mm) Barrels machined out of brass.  You get 4 barrels.  These would be perfect for the 1/24 Airfix Mosquito as well as other models in 1:24 scale.

The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  Version with flash hider used mostly as a defensive (flexible) weapon on bombers, except of Mosquito, where four Brownings with flash suppressers were fitted.

Set includes 4 turned brass barrels with slotted cooling jackets. Flash suppressers are separate elements, so you can assemble the barrels without them.  Version without flash suppresser was used mostly as a offensive (fixed) weapon on fighters (Spitfire, Hurricane).

These are very simple to use in your model, and they will make it extremely realistic. Simply cut off the original plastic barrel and drill a hole in the remaining plastic parts and insert the metal barrel using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

You can purchase these and other fine detail items directly from the Master website.
