Call me old-fashioned, but I consistently find myself being floored by the level of modeling detail available these days, especially with resin aftermarket materials. In the old days, you could only dream of this kind of quality.

Quickboost scores another one with their release of this outstanding set of P-38 gun barrels. Designed to fit the Trumpeter kit (although I suspect they’d fit the venerable Revell kit in the same scale). The set includes four .50 caliber barrels and the 20mm cannon barrel.

Each machine gun barrel has the lightening holes beautifully represented completely around the barrel as well as an open muzzle. The cannon barrel displays the minute recoil spring and an open muzzle as well. Designed to be drop-in pieces, they should require no additional work to add them to your model and will certainly enhance this area immensely.

As an added thought though – I’d wait to add these until your build is almost complete as they are completely to scale and could break off easily, especially in a vulnerable area such as the nose.

The improvement over the kit parts, especially at this price, is a VERY worthwhile investment and can do nothing but enhance the look of your masterpiece. I can heartily recommend this set without reservations.

My thanks to Quickboost for making this wonderful (and highly useful) set and to IPMS/USA for a chance to add this to my own project. Wonderful!
