Out of Poland comes a series of add ons. This one is a turned brass replacement for the pitot tube on a F-111.

It looks fantastic and the instructions indicate that it replaces the kit part. The one thing missing is that they don't recommend which kit to use. According to their website it will work on any 72nd scale kit. I don't have an Aardvark in my stash to check but it sure looks like it will improve any kit.

The brass part is well-made and very petite. It requires no further clean up (as opposed to what the kit parts will need) and won't break during handling while finishing your model. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Master Model Poland for the sample and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review it.
