First Look

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).

My sincere thanks to Resin 2 Detail for this review sample!
