The FuG 220 Sn-2b radar antennas were installed on Bf 110 and Ju 88 night fighters during World War. These radar antennas are the focal point of any night fighter kit. Model Master from Poland provides us with turned brass antenna struts and antenna dipoles to enhance the look of our next night fighter kit.

The turned brass parts mean that no mold line is present and that alone is enough of a reason to consider upgrading your kit. The other advantage is that antenna struts and dipoles actually have a circular cross-section.

Assembly is straightforward and simple. The instructions recommend soldering the parts together for assembly, but my soldering skills are not very good. I've used super glue instead. It worked OK, but I managed to knock off the dipoles in a few occasions during construction.

The modeler is expected to remove some parts from the antenna struts provided in the kit and to modify them to accept the turned brass parts, by drilling a single hole per strut.

Recommended for the intermediate experienced modeler, due to the small parts size.

I would like to thank Master Model for the review sample.
