This item from Quickboost is a direct replacement for the control stick for Trumpeter F-105 kits and should be compatible for their D and G models. They should also be useable on the Hasagawa or Monogram/Revell kits. Three new sticks are provided in the package. The detail is a bit finer than the Trumpeter version but they are a bit fragile. As you can see in the pics, I broke off one of the grips just while handling it for the pictures. So use some care when you are removing the sticks from the runner and the flash from the stick itself.

No instructions are provided as they are a direct replacement for the kit part.

So, just be a little careful and you will have a nicely detailed stick for the pit.

Thanks to Aires and IPMS/USA for the review kit.
