Base Kit: Any 1/48 MiG-23 Flogger (except MiG-23MLD)
Background This is the third item from this manufacturer that I have reviewed, and I am quite enthusiastic about the product line. This particular item is meant for all MiG-23 Floggers except the MLD variant. The MLD pitot tube (item number 48-059) is also available.
The Review Product
The parts are packaged in a small zip lock bag, stapled in a folded, heavy paper stock display hanger. The parts are also sealed in a small envelope of clear plastic film taped to a heavy card stock stiffener inside the bag. Also included is a small set of instructions.
A small instruction sheet is also included that shows the installation.
I planned to use this pitot tube on the new Trumpeter MiG-23M, Flogger B. Installation is a simple matter of drilling out the opening in the kit nose part, applying a touch of super glue, inserting the pitot tube, and it’s ready for paint. That simple, but what an improvement over the kit pitot tube!
