New Review: Standard Nose F-5 Pitot

Recommended Posts

Product Image

The Master products are very fine and well done brass parts to update or repair your kit. In this case, it was an F-5A which I built several years ago, and the pitot tube was badly bent. Also, the guns were barely visible.

This set consists of a brass pitot, two 20mm guns, and a fairing which can replace the left gun.

The upgrade is pretty simple. You get a .3mm drill. Remove the kit pitot and drill a hole there. The guns require a little more work, as there isn't a good place to start drilling. I began by using a #1 blade to dig the guns out, then drilled the .3 mm holes. Then I installed the pitot and the guns. I had to use a little filler under the guns to get them looking good.

I painted the area with the same gray I used to paint the model, then highlighted the guns. I used Testors "Burnt Metal" for these, as I find gun metal to be too dark.

And the project was done. Looks good.
