This is the third replacement piece that I have acquired for my 1/48 Eduard Spitfire Mk.Ixc build. Master Model has produced a detailed pair of Hispano 20mm cannons that provide details that are missing even in the excellent Eduard kit. This is not to diminish the Eduard kit that has been reviewed by Bret Green as the definitive (his opinion) 1/48 Spitfire kit. In the photo the Master Model pieces are compared side by side to the sprue attached parts of the Eduard kit. You can clearly see the enhanced definition of the Master Model replacements. On close inspection there may be the opportunity for a steady hand, lots of patience and small sharp needle to do a little hollowing out of the front of the cannon barrel.


I highly recommend these replacement parts.

Thanks to Master Model for providing these parts and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review this item.
