Default condensation on horizontal tube???

Wikie is on a distinguished road

how can I simulate the condensation of water on horizontal tubes? I'm having a tube surrounded by a stream of humid air. The tube is colder than the humid air, so condensation should occour. Does anybody have experience in this field and is willing to share her/ his information.
To simulate condensation in FLUENT I should use the evaporation-condensation model, so I can only use the mixture or Eulerian multiphase model. Am I right?
Will I be also able to simulate the condensation flow like seen in the attatchment??
