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. 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 detailing on these barrels is exceptional, especially when you consider the fact it is 1/72.  These are a huge improvement over the 1/72 plastic kit 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.
