This delightful kit enhancement part come on a crisply cast frame in neutral tan-gray resin.  The part replaces the nose pitot on any F-14 kit.  Three tubes are included, allowing you to dress up three models, unless you operate like I do and retain spares for post-construction damage.  The parts are all well supported with nice extensions.  These extensions will allow you to drill out the nose and slide the new tube in, making a much stronger join with the model.  The parts have sharp definition and no bubbles or sinks were found.  The resin was just soft and flexible enough to allow easy trimming and sanding.  The parts appear to be in scale, although I was unable to confirm this.

These parts will certainly dress up any F-14.  I recommend them.

Thank you to David Lajer of Aires and the IPMS Reviewer Corps for the opportunity to review this gem!  Your generosity is much appreciated.
