The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes Fw 190 A7 - A9 armament set (MG 131, MG 151 barrel tips, MK 108 blast tubes) & Pitot Tube (for Eduard kit). 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.

The instructions are very well done and provide you with the accurate dimensions you need to accurately install all these parts of your next Fw 190 A7 or Fw 190 A9.  I particularly like the fine machining on the very fine pitot tube which is a vast improvement over the crude plastic pitot tube in 1/72 scale.

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.
