Next in HobbyDecal's new line of pitot tubes cast in metal is this set for the F-16 Falcon. 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. The Falcon has two of these babies.  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. The 1/32 set will fit any F-16 kit, the 1/48 set is for the Hasegawa, Revell, Italeri and Academy kits while the 1/72 version is only for the Hasegawa kit. The great thing about these is no more broken away nose probes thanks to handling incidents.
