Base Kit: 1/48 P-38 (See Review)
Master Model from Poland continues to expand its 1:48 Air Master line. This time with a detail set covering the weapons for the P-38M Night Fighter.
Master Model does not specify for which P-38 kit this set is. I know of two kits of the P-38M: Academy and Monogram. I did a side-by-side comparison with the Monogram one.
As shown in the picture, the respectable (but quite old) Monogram kit has all flash hiders molded the same size, closer to the size of the cannon than to the size of the machine guns.
As you can see from the pictures the metal parts for both the machine guns and the cannon are very delicate with extra thin edges in the conically-shape flash hiders.
This set is an easy way to enhance the looks of your model, either the Academy or the Monogram one.
I would like to thank Master Model and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
