Another in a long line of excellent turned metal (brass) items from Master Model; IPMS USA sincerely appreciates Master’s support of our reviewer corps!

Up front, Master provides turned-metal pitot probes for the excellent Airfix Javelin. This kit really needs these, as the probes go from robust, “fat” bases, to extremely thin probe fronts. And the kit items are usually bent right out of the box… Metal is the answer!

This package contains two turned metal probes in a double-bag system; first, the outer protective card with details on the contents, then an internal “small” bag with the scale, strong air data probes.

Installation: drill holes where required, in this case the existing air data mounts on the wingtips, and use superglue to install. Paint and be done!

Watch your eyes and other sensitive bits when working with these; they could cause serious damage for the careless…

Thanks again to our friends at Master model for this set; When this kit came out I was waiting for these to arrive, as I just KNEW they would need aftermarket items… I wasn’t wrong! And thanks to IPMS USA Reviewer corps leadership for sending them to me.
