|The funnels are also well done with good cap aprons and bases as well as being hollowed out sufficiently. The steam piping fitted to the funnels is done in resin and are
cast in the proper shape. A smaller structure with a cowl vent that is fitted amidships rounds off the structural parts. 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. Parts are also
included for what appears to be a 2-pounder gun which is an alternate for the 3-inch gun. The instructions are not specific as to which ship this gun was fitted, so
some research by the modeler is needed. 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, a motor launch, whaleboats,
various lockers, range finder, small cowl vents, various bridge fittings and numerous smaller parts. The casting is adequate though with the much smaller parts
suffering from poor casting and also coming loose during shipping. I honestly do not know what parts 41 are supposed to be but there are a lot of them and are among
those that came off the runners and not well cast. Resin part 22, which is a storage bin, can be replaced with photo-etch parts 61 and 80.
The photo-etch parts come on two larger frets and parts for the 4.7-inch guns on five individual ones. 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 parts as well as detail parts. The larger fret contains the railings,
inclined and vertical ladders, 3-inch gun platform, 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 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.
