Now here is a neat idea for the jet modeler. HobbyDecal has come out with a line of pitot tubes cast in metal. These are extremely well done and in some cases (as this one) include the very small Angle of Attack probe you often see sticking out of the side of the nose. Each set is packaged in very thick bags to keep the sharp probes from punching through. There are installation instructions that include the size of the hole one needs to mount the probe. As you can see from the scans, these are in 1/32, 1/48 and 1/72 scale. These long probes are for the F-4E and F-4F versions. There are a ton of kits on which these will fit as the Phantom is one of those great aircraft that have a lot of plastic devoted to it.
