|The main parts for the armament are done in resin, with added photo-etch details. Parts are provided for the 4.7-inch gun mounts, the 3-inch anti-aircraft gun and
the triple 21-inch torpedo tubes. Resin 20mm Oerilkons barrels are provided for the 1942 fit. The parts are also generally good with some clean up needed. Turned
brass barrels for the 4.7 inch guns are included and recommended over the resin versions. The remaining small resin parts include the propellers, rudder, propeller
shaft struts, Carley floats, depth charges, a motor launch, a pair of whaleboats, various lockers, range finder, small cowl vents, various bridge fittings and
numerous smaller parts. The casting is adequate though some of the smaller parts suffer from poor casting and were either broken or came loose during shipping.
The photo-etch parts come on two larger frets and parts for the 4.7-inch guns on five individual ones. A pair of brass frets with splinter mats are provided but not
referenced at all in the assembly guide, so these may have been included in error. The photo-etch is very well done, with great detail and relief-etching, and is one
of the strong points of this kit. The photo-etch provides a lot of standard and detail parts. The larger fret contains the railings, inclined and vertical ladders, 3-inch
gun details and platform, 20mm Oerlikon shields and details, .303-inch twin Lewis guns, depth charge racks, parts for the searchlight tower, boat details, boat
davits, bridge wing supports, propeller guards, torpedo tube bases, funnel cap grills and details and sundry parts. The railings have individual stanchion ends which
I find harder to work with. The smaller fret is comprised of some additional lengths of railing, alternate funnel cap grills, parts for some storage bins and lockers,
anchors, additional vertical and inclined ladders, accommodation ladders, oars for the boats and floats and other detail parts. The individual frets for the 4.7-inch
guns have the mounts, gun shields, gun bases and hand wheels. Part numbers are etched into the two larger frets.
