Master Barrels Spitfire "E" wing - mounting suggestions


Recommended Posts

It is coming up to time on my Spitfire XVI build when I am considering how to mount the excellent barrels to my Spitfire. My mark 1 eyeball and logic suggests the outer circumference of the kit part is the same as the circumference of the turned metal. Therefore merely thinning said plastic to "slide" the barrels in would not work. I am considering removing the plastic by saw back to the front curved insert and then thinning the sides of plastic to create an oval, leaving hopefully a correctly sized hole. The obvious problem if I screw the pooch is that I will not have an insert to mount any cannon.

 

For those of you out there that have faced this first world problem...how did you resolve it?

Welcome to my issue that I had on my build...

 

The only ways I saw was to remove the plastic and try fill everything in to make it smooth...

 

Or

 

The get the barrels turned and remove the brass so it just slots in..

I thought that may be the case. I have sent Master a strongly worded email :)

 

Thanks Dave

You would think so but apparently (or so I have been led to believe) they were made for either the Tamiya or PCM kit. However to have tooled them the same as the previous set for the Tamiya C wing, would have meant they were too short for use on the PCM kit.Still thinking on it.....
