This is another of Master’s growing list of pitot tubes for specific 1/72 scale aircraft. This set continues in the tradition of excellent, quality products from this company. Master’s MiG-23MLD set includes a turned-metal pitot tube and photo etched brass vortex generators. These vortex generators direct air flow when the aircraft is at high angles of attack. If they are placed correctly, this might hold true for your model also. As you can see from the photos, these pieces are much more convincing than the pitot tube supplied in the kit. My only caution would be about gluing the photo etched parts to the sides of the brass pitot tube. I think a little patience will be required since there isn’t much surface area to work with.

For a very reasonable price, you can add another level of detail to your kit. I highly recommend Master’s set for any MiG-23MLD variant. You can see more products, as well as suppliers, where you can buy their product line on the Master website. Thanks to Master for providing the review sample and to IPMS/USA for the review opportunity.
