Master Model is a small Polish company, specialized in producing high quality metal turned barrels for model scale aircraft and ships. The company recently ventured into 1/35 scale with the first release in the new “Ground Master” 1/35 scale line: M61A1 Vulcan 20mm six-barrel rotary cannon (35001).

Thank you for that great review. I'm planning to get that set for an IDF M163 Machbet, seems that's what you're buidling too?

Anyway your construction tips will be very useful.

Cheers,

Christophe

Thanks Christophe. Yes, I'm building the Machbet... here's the tread: link

These barrels are light years from kit plastic, or even the superb Hobby Fan conversion.

Looks like a great set. What is the approximate cost?

I would think a bit less than their 1/32 Vulcan barrels... about $12-$15. But that's just my guess.
