I need to build an in-flight refueling probe for this kit. Does anyone have one that they may be able to give me some measurements from?

4.6cm overall length...including the shroud that the tip fits into (which only adds about 1mm in length)

**part is from Hasegawa kit**

Thanks. This shows me length. I appreciate that.

Any way you can tell me the diameters?

This is 1:48, yes?
