The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 2 turned brass machine gun barrels (4 pcs). It is very simple to use on your model, and makes it extremely realistic. Simply cut off the original plastic barrel and drill a hole in the remaining parts and insert the metal barrel using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

These 2 part brass machine gun barrels are exceptional with their cooling jacket detailing and this level of detail is such an improvement over plastic kit parts.

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

I would like to thank Master for providing me with this product sample.  Visit their website for more finely crafted detail items in a variety of scales.
