Detail Packaging

Master Model has entered the turned metal barrel scene with a flurry of excellent pitot tubes and gun barrels. Well, this latest release is no different.

As any of you who have built the F-4 Phantom know, you know that the pitot tubes on the nose and the tail ram air inlet are prone to breakage, particularly when you are handling the model. Well, now you don’t have to worry about that.

In the package you get three perfectly formed turned metal parts that include the pitot tube, ram air inlet, and angle of attack probe. These are all accurately shaped in brass with nothing to remove other than the kit parts, and then drill mounting holes. Adding the parts is done with super glue. The additional strength that the brass components as well as the to-scale appearance are exactly what I look for in my brass parts.

Highly recommended.

Thanks to Master Model and IPMS/USA for the review copy and review opportunity.

Reviewer Bio

Floyd S. Werner Jr.

Building models since the age of 7, I’ve become known for my Bf-109s and helicopters. I currently run Werner’s Wings. I was previously the ‘star’ of the Master Class Model Building Video series. I’ve been published numerous times on various website, including Hyperscale and ARC. My work has been in FSM and Great Scale Modeling 2001, as well as, numerous other model magazines. I’m a published author with my Squadron/Signal Walkaround book on the Kiowa Warrior. My models have continuously won many regional and national awards. My unique model photography gives my models instant recognition for their historical perspective.

I’m a retired from the Army after 21 years of flying Cobras and Kiowa Warriors, including tours in Iraq, Bosnia, Korea, and Germany. I’m also a retired Flight Officer for the Baltimore City Police and flew their helicopters chasing bad guys. I’m currently flying Cobras and Hueys with the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation.

I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart, Yvonne, for 42 years. Our daughters have blessed us with six grandchildren. My passions continue to be his family, friends, helicopters, models and airplanes, especially the Bf-109 and my beloved AH-1 Cobra. My motto has always been - MODELING IS FUN!
