Master Model of Poland has been making turned brass and aluminum gun barrels and pitot tubes (among other items) for several years now and turns out some outstanding replacement parts for aircraft, armor, and ship modelers. All of their products are reasonably priced as well.

Adding to the Air Masters series, Master Model of Poland has a simple replacement part for that 1/32ndscale Kitty Hawk OV-10 Bronco that is languishing in your stash. And all for the want of a descent pitot tube. I say that because the pitot tube is rather prominent on this aircraft.

Assembly can't be much simpler. You find the kit supplied injected molded part on the appropriate sprue, remove said part, and then throw it in the trash. Take the turned aluminum pitot tube from Master Model out of the packaging and insert it into the previously assembled nose bits. You'll probably spend more time just readying the last couple of sentences than the time you actually use installing this part from Master Model.

I have used several of Master Model products and am still constantly amazed at the finesse and fidelity to scale that they achieve.

My thanks to Master Model and IPMS/USA for the review copy.

P.S. Did I mention that this part is only five bucks?

P.P.S. Master Model also has a 1/48thscale pitot tube for the OV-10 Bronco.
