Gun Barrels For Hawker Typhoons

1:24 Master

This month’s releases from Master Models include these two sets for the Airfix 1:24 Hawker Typhoons. 

 

[AM-24-014] – This set is designed for early aircraft with flat recoil springs. Each barrel comes in three parts and the only preparation you have to do to the kit is to cut off 4mm from the tip of each kit fairing and open the hole out to 3mm. The aluminium fairing tip is the glued into place, followed by the spring section and finally the muzzle section.

[AM-24-015] – This set is designed for later aircraft with the round recoil springs. These barrels come in four parts and require the same preparation to the kit fairing tips before the aluminium replacement tip is attached, followed by the rear barrel section, separate spring and finally the muzzle section.

Conclusion

The outstanding Airfix kits are a work of art and require much patience and skill to make them look amazing. These simple sets will be the cream that tops it all off.
