The quality of the detailing has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  It is very simple to use on your model, and makes it extremely realistic. Simply cut off the original plastic pitot tube and drill a hole in the remaining parts and insert the metal barrel using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

This is an excellent item if you are building an export versions of US WW2 aircraft. 

You can purchase these and other fine detail items directly from the Master website.   

I would like to thank Master for providing me with this product sample.  Visit their website for more finely crafted detail items in a variety of scales.
