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.

These are the famous tank busting 37mm cannons used with good success on the Ju-87 Stuka and other ground attack aircraft.  The ends are intricately drilled to replicate the real 37mm cannons.  These are a big improvement over the plastic kit parts.

You can purchase these and other fine detail items directly from the Master website.  Visit their website for more finely crafted detail items in a variety of scales.
