Master Model 1/48 Fairey Firefly Barrels

This set comes with 2 types of fairing, so you can choose the type that you need. You then slide together the 3 part barrel and you’re done – simple. The fairings fit into 1.5 mm holes in the wings. The barrels are made from turned metal, with a small spring in the middle, and are very nicely done and well detailed. It is a definite improvement over what comes with the kit. There’s a one page instruction sheet with an image of where to fix it and it should be a straight fit. If you do need to drill a hole to fit it you’re told that you need a 1.5 mm hole. Fix in place with cyanoacrylate. A highly recommended and simple update to your next build.

Many thanks to Master Modeler for the review sample.
