This latest release from Master features a pair of 1/32 Japanese Type 97 7,7mm machine gun barrels with drilled cooling jackets (4pcs) machined out of brass.  Standard Japanese aircraft machinegun during World War II.  Used in many fighters and bombers

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 barrels with drilled cooling jackets. 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 gun barrels are quite well done and the fact they are done in 2 parts gives excellent separation between the gun barrels and the cooling jackets.  I am quite impressed by the level of detail offered in this set.

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.
