The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 1 turned 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 pitot tube using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

This F-8 metal pitot tube will provide crisp fine detail that is much improved over the bulky plastic part that comes with the kit. 

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.
