|Set 2 consists of 4 60mm long masts. These are the larger masts with four different tapers 1.4mm to .4mm, 1.6mm to .5mm, 1.8mm to .6mm and 2mm to .7mm|
|For reference, in 1/700 scale, 1mm works out to 2.29 feet,
and .15 mm comes out to about 4 inches.
with the Model Master brass yard arms set this give the model builder an
excellent set of options for replacing weak kit mast, especially those
cast in resin. I have used these before and they solder up nicely and provide
a strong mast for rigging without sag.
The sets retails for $10.95 each but are available from Freetime Hobbies for $5.95. Thanks to Model Master for the review samples. Highly Recommended. Check the list of stores that sell the line on the Master Model website.
