Carbon Fibre Aerials
Accurate Armour, 1/35 or 1/48 Scales
Reviewed by Paul Chatfield
Here’s a neat little accessory I picked up from Accurate Armour, Carbon fibre aerials. These are a great solution for how to do aerials on AFVs. Whilst some kits do contain an attempt at aerials most don’t, and in those that do they look way over scale.
Accurate Armour supplies five 100mm lengths of 0.25mm carbon fibre rod. That’s enough for five 2 metre and five 1 metre aerials in 1/35 (more in 1/48).
The carbon is pretty bendy and would be great for use on modern AFVs with “whip” type aerials that are bent over and tied down.

I used one of mine on a Sherman, attaching it with just a spot of super-fast Superglue. Simplicity itself!
This is a nice product that can add the finishing touch to your model. I bought mine direct from AA and paid £4.95 + P&P.
