The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 3 turned brass sensor probes. It is very simple to use on your model, and makes it extremely realistic. Simply cut off or don't use the original plastic probes and drill a hole in the remaining parts and insert the metal probe using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

There is one page of instructions with images to help you install these parts.

These probes have an amazingly high level of detail and will be  afantastic improvement over the plastic kit parts. 

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.
