Many important WWII British fighters featured the Hispano-Suiza 20mm cannon, including the Spitfire, Hurricane and Typhoon.

This set from Cutting Edge supplies a total of twelve cannon barrels in three different styles. Detail is crisp and the parts are simply attached to their casting block at the base of the barrel. A swipe with a sharp knife will take care of removal and cleanup. 

Only one set of four barrels has a hollow end. The others are apparently doped over!

This will be a handy set for modellers wishing to depict their models with exposed Hispano-Suiza 20mm cannon barrels.
