The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 4 turned brass barrels and one pitot tube. 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.

This set gives you everything you need to properly upgrade the 6 machine guns and the pitot tube on any 1/48 Fw 190 A6.  The quality and detail is first rate with drilled barrels for the 4 wing machine guns and the 2 highly detail machine guns on the engine cowling above the engine.  The pitot tube is a work of art and loaded with fine detail.

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.
