The set includes turned brass barrels.

It is very simple to use in Your model, and makes it extremely realistic. Simply cut off the original plastic barrel and drill a 2mm hole in the remaining plastic parts and insert the metal barrel using Cyanoacrylate adhesives. Make sure you leave 9.2mm of fairing standing proud of the wing leading edge.

Other versions of Firefly’s cannons in Master Modeler’s sets:

AM-72-076 – Fairey Firefly – Hispano 20mm cannons with uncovered barrels

AM-72-077 – Fairey Firefly – Hispano 20mm cannons in long fairings

A highly recommended and simple update to your 1/72 Firefly build.

Many thanks to Master Modeler for the review sample.
