Master-Model has produced replacement AOA probes and a pitot tube for any 1/32 F-16 kit. The metal replacements are a simple drop-in for the kit's plastic parts. The supplied items include two AOA probes and one pitot tube. There will be no modification required for the installation of the replacements other than a slight drilling out of the pitot receiving hole to accommodate the replacement's larger base (at least on my Academy kit's nose cone). You will have to use CA or epoxy glues to secure them, of course.

A side-by side-evaluation (see photos) indicates a replacement of superior detail that will provide a more accurate representation of these tiny exterior details.

Highly recommended.

Thanks to Master Model and the IPMS Reviewer Corps for the opportunity to review these items.
