This set, Master 1/48 Shenyang J-6/F-6 Gun Barrels Set and Pitot Tube, AM-48-093, is for all 1/48 kits and contains a turned aluminum Pitot Tube, 2 aluminium gun fairings and 3 resin muzzles. The set comes in Master Model’s usual packaging. The 2 aluminium gun fairings and 3 resin muzzles are in one bag and the aluminum Pitot Tube is in another bag. The 2 bags, with the instruction sheet are inside another sealed bag, with a card stiffener. All this is then stapled shut as well with a card header.

It is very simple to use in your model, and makes it extremely realistic. The instructions are very clear and straightforward:

  • For the 2 wing root cannon, simply cut off the original plastic barrels along the panel line and drill a 0.8 mm hole in the remaining plastic parts and insert the metal fairing and resin muzzles using cyanoacrylate adhesives.
  • For the nose cannon just drill a 1.4 mm hole and fit the remaining resin muzzle.
  • For the pitot tube, cut off the plastic pitot tube as shown in the instructions, drill and 0.5 mm hole and secure the aluminium barrel with cyanoacrylate.

Many thanks to Master Model for sending the sample for review.
