These two armament sets from Master Model provide a full range of replacement brass gun barrels for the new Dragon German Destroyer kits. Set contents include:

  • Z-25: Four 150 mm (5.9"); Twelve 37mm; Eighteen 20mm
  • Z-39: Four 150mm (5.9"); Fourteen 37mm; Twelve 20mm

Each of the brass barrels is slightly tapered with very finely defined segmentations. Additionally, all of the 20mm barrels and some of the 37mm barrels in each set (four for the Z-25 and ten for Z-39) have barely discernable (but yet, in scale) flash suppressors at the open ends of the barrels. The very high level of manufacturing craftsmanship is readily visible in all the Master Model products, and these sets are certainly no exception.

My thanks to Master Model for providing IPMS with these review sets.
