The Parts

Hobby Design makes a number of detail parts for automotive subjects from metal parts, to resin wheels, and photo etched detail sets for a wide variety of modeling subjects.

I reviewed the HD07-0057 1/24thAntenna Set [C] which comes in a pack of 2 priced @ $4.25 USD. These are all metal and nicely machined.

Assembly

Assembly is pretty straight forward: I removed the molded plastic antenna holder on top of a Tamiya 1/24 SAUBER-MERCEDES C9 with a photo etch saw; then, using my pin vice and a 0.5mm drill bit I drilled a hole into the plastic.  That's pretty much it. The antennae come in to parts making it easy to paint any color you like. Some CA glue is perfect to hold the antenna into its base.

Conclusion

I highly recommended these products for anyone who wants to add realism to their models. Hobby Design makes three different antenna sets to meet a wide variety of modelers needs. Thanks to Hobby Design and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review these excellent products.
