This group of nose probes is not for any specific aircraft, just something that the modeler might find useful for a projects. I'm not sure how it was determined that these were British, but there it is. We have the pitots in all major scales. For those wondering about the part number, just add the scale in front of it. So 72009M1 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.
