The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 4 turned brass pitot tube. 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 pitot tube is hollow on the end and is very realistic. 

You can purchase this 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.
