This group of nose probes is for The EE/BAC Lighting. That is because it is the only kit listed on any of the packages. Since there are Lightnings in all major scales, we have the pitots in all major scales. For those wondering about the part number, just add the scale in front of it. So 72008M1 is 1/72 and so forth.

These are extremely well done and quite simple to install. All one has to do is to drill a hole in the nose or enlarge the one that is there.  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.

They are sure to enhance your next Lightning build and fewer worries about breaking one off during handling. I wouldn't be surprised to see a bug skewered on the end of one though!
