The quality of the resin casting has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed with a hole in the end of the pitot tube and is of the highest quality.  This set includes 1 resin and metal 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 was a popular pitot tube on WW2 aircraft and it 1/32 scale you can see some excellent detail on this pitot tube. 

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.
