Trumpets

Trumpets
Trumpeters use a curious coupling to their musical instruments known as "mute" thanks to which they modify the sound of their trumpets.

The mechanics also attach things to the inlet trumpets of the engines, known as "grids", thanks to which they avoid suctioning into the admission chambers any stones, tyre rubber chips, or anything else that happens to fly nearby :)

And we scale modelers, while listening to the music of our favorite trumpeters, attach Model Factory Hiro grids to the inlet trumpets of our beloved models... :D

Search for your grids at SpotModel and... make those trumpets sound!
