New Review: Hawker Tempest Mk. V Early Type Cannons with Covered Barrels

Recommended Posts

Master - Reality in Miniature is a scale model metal detailing parts manufacturer located in Poland.  Their lines include exquisitely detailed photo-etched, turned brass and white metal replacement parts for aircraft and ships in the most commonly produced scales. 

Master has produced replacement cannons of the early type, with sheathed barrels for any 1/72 Hawker Tempest early Mk V kits.  This item is intended to completely replace the plastic kit parts.  My example kit (a Maquette issue from Russia) is a Mk V, and my research indicates it is the correct version that this particular part issue would be appropriate for.

The parts instructions are graphic, with English text.  They are easily understood, and offer some important cautions and sequencing for the assembly and use of the parts.  A close-up evaluation of the parts (see photos), indicates a simple cut and replace installation that provides a realistic scale-detailed assembly with a significantly improved appearance to moulded plastic kit parts.
