Master Models is a company that makes turned brass aftermarket parts, specifically pitot tubes, refueling probes, and antennas.

The first thing I would like to point out is how good the packaging and instruction sheet is. The packaging consists of a zip-lock type bag while the part is in a smaller bag, keeping it from moving all over. The instruction sheet is very clear and easy to understand, only needing 3 steps. Cut off original part, Drill a hole (0.3 mm), Glue in the new metal part. Just be careful drilling the hole, especially in 1/72. You have to put each antenna group together which includes 3 parts. Mine got a little bent because of how small they are. I needed to use my visor with the highest magnification. Others will probably have an easier time than me if they are used to putting such small delicate parts together.

When compared to the kit part there is no comparison. The kit antenna tube looks very bulky while the Master Model part is more delicate and actually resembles an antenna. Once you use a couple of these pieces you will be completely spoiled and never want to use the kit antennas again.

I highly recommend this product if you want a really superior looking model. The only problem I have now is that I want to use their products on all of my models. When looking at their catalog I’m amazed at how extensive their line is in all scales. Thanks to Master Models Poland and IPMS USA for the chance to do this review.
