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 barrels and 2 piece 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 barrels and drill a hole in the remaining parts and insert the metal barrel using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

The detail on these parts is shockingly good, especially if you considered the fact this is 1/72.  These parts are a must on your next 1/72 F-5 Tiger II "Freedom Fighter" (shark nose versions) F-5 E, F. 

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.
