A-1 Skyraider 20mm Cannon Barrels and Pitot Tube

The Master A-1 Skyraider 20mm cannon barrels and Pitot Tube sets are all made up of identical scale parts to create a very detailed and realistic gun barrels for the Skyraiders. Not only do these sets give us great detail but the nature of the turned brass parts gives this structure strength.

 

 

These sets are each made up of 13 turned brass parts. You are supplied with 3 different types of barrels, so you need to check your references for the correct version. You are supplied with one set of long barrels and 2 sets of short barrels, one with the reinforced barrel ends. There is a pitot tubes supplied as well.

Each set is packed sealed into separate sections of a plastic bag, so they don’t go everywhere.

 

 

In the various scales these sets cover a huge range of brands of kits. The 1/32 is suitable for the Trumpeter and Zoukei-Mura kits. The 1/48 set covers Esci, Italeri, Monogram and Tamiya kits whilst the 1/72 offering is suitable for the Airfix and Hasegawa kits.


 

A-1 Skyraider 20mm cannon barrels with Flash Hiders and Pitot Tube

The other Master Skyraider set is the A-1 Skyraider 20mm cannon barrels with Flash hiders (suppressors) and Pitot Tube.

 

 

This set is mainly for the USAF versions from the Vietnam War (see photo) and for those who carried out night raids.

 

 

This set just gives you a set of extra-long barrels and the Pitot tube.

 

 

C o n c l u s i o n

 

Each of these sets would be highly recommended to any A-1 Skyraider modellers out there. Keep them coming Master!
