If you are like me, I can become ham handed when modeling and anything sticking out will get knocked off. The Eduard BF-109F/G is a perfect example. Eduard molded the pitot tube on the wingtip and sometimes I knock it off. Well, you can use the kit supplied extra pitot tube or you can elect to use the Brassin one. The Brassin pitot tube is significantly better and easier to clean up. There are no mold lines which must be cleaned up on the plastic piece.

There are three pitot tubes on the pour block. They are simple to remove. Also remove the little tip at the end and it is ready to use. You will have to drill a hole in the wingtip. The pitot tube angles down slightly. Attach with super glue and you are ready for paint.

While designed for the Eduard kit these pitot tubes can be used on any 1/48th scale Bf-109F/G/K kit. I used mine on an Eduard and a Zvezda kit with no problems.

This is a really nice upgrade and the addition of three tubes, makes it a bargain. What more do you need from a set? Good looks, inexpensive and easy to clean up. I really liked using the set. The key is how does it look? I think the results speak for themselves. Awesome!

Highly recommended
