Brass Parts

Master Models out of Poland has issued several sets of parts for the many Skyraider kits and in all scales. This set includes replacement pitot tube and multiple option gun barrels without flash hiders for the family of 1/32 Skyraider’s. In this case, I will be giving it a test run on my Zoukei Mura kit.

Inside the package, you will find one excellent pitot tube for the tail and twelve beautiful machined brass parts for the guns which include 4 main barrels and two different sets of muzzles which will allow you to replicate the guns you need. All muzzles have hollow ends to replicate the gun openings.

The pictures below show the increased detail of the pitot tube. It is much finer and stronger that the kit part with no seam. The installation will be simple, just glue in place of the kit part.

The installation of the guns is also simple. Cut off the kit barrels where it is shown in the instructions. Center and drill a hole for the main barrel. Glue in place and pick which muzzle design you need and glue that in place. Prime and paint as needed.

For $12.00, this is a must have. The pitot tube is more to scale, not breakable and a drop in replacement. The gun barrels are also more to scale and give you multiple options. Very highly recommended.

My thanks to Master Model and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review this set.
