This release from Master features a eight 1/48 P-47 Thunderbolt .50 Browning M2 barrels (8pcs) machined out of brass.  The P-47 was an impressive large fighter and a beautiful gun platform for ground attack and air to air.

The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 8 turned brass barrels. 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.  For the Tamiya P-47 Thunderbolt model simply replace original plastic barrels. For the Hasegawa model, drill a hole in the plastic parts and insert the metal barrel using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

These brass barrels will be a huge improvement in detail over the crude plastic barrels. 

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.
