This set, Master 1/72 Buccaneer pitot tube and refuelling probe, AM-72-081, is for all 1/72 kits and contains a brass pitot tube and an aluminium refuelling probe. The set comes in Master Model’s usual packaging. The pitot tube and refuelling probe are in one bag and this bag with the instruction sheet are inside another sealed bag, with a card stiffener. All this is then stapled shut as well with a card header.

It is very simple to use in your model, and makes it extremely realistic. The instructions are very clear and straightforward:

  • Cut the ends off the pitot tube and refuelling probe.
  • Drill 0.5 mm holes
  • Insert the pitot tube and refuelling probe and secure with cyanoacrylate.

Many thanks to Master Model for sending the sample for review.
