Resin 2 Detail has released this distinctive antenna for the ARN-5 glidepath system. The set comes with the antenna base, the wishbone antenna, and a small brass rod that mounts to the antenna to represent the other antenna element in the system. This set is described for use on the Monogram or Revell 1/48 B-17 kits but you'll find it installed on other aircraft like the B-25J (also available from Monogram).
As with all aftermarket details, check if the subject you're modeling was equipped with one of these antennas, and if so, here is a simple solution for that missing detail on your model. This set can be purchased directly from the manufacturer here: resin2detail.com.
My sincere thanks to Resin 2 Detail for this review sample!
