|The smaller resin parts include 4.5-inch Mk. 8 turret, parts for the Sea Dart mounting, a pair of 909 radomes, a pair of RHIBs, RHIB crane, Gemini inflatable boat,
Lynx helicopter fuselage, CWIS mountings, SCOT radomes, SCOT housing, ESM housing, 1022 radar mast, and a small maintenance boat. Two different versions
of the engine intake boxes are including, one for early Batch 1 and 2 fits and another for a late Batch 2 fit HMS Nottingham and Liverpool. The casting is generally
good with some the parts requiring the removal of excess resin in several spots.
A common feature of Atlantic Models kits are white metal parts, which include the 4.5-inch Mk. 8 gun barrel, rudders, stabilizers, propellers, propeller shaft “A”
frames, anchors, RBOC chaff launchers, DLF3 decoy canisters, a variety antennas and sensors, a small radome, the top of the mainmast, life raft canisters, RAS
post, and a deck winch. The white metal parts require a little more cleanup and are not as refined when compared to the small resin parts but they work. White
metal is malleable so be careful when handling the gun barrels, mainmast top and anchors as they can be easily bent. A replacement turned brass barrel is available
separately from Atlantic Models, for which I did a review of (http://www.steelnavy.net/AtlanticMk8gunFBustelo.html). As expected, the photo-etch brass is
excellent with lots of parts. The brass includes many lengths of pre-measured railings, inclined and vertical ladders, parts for the 1022 radar, RHIB cradles, Gemini
crane, 20mm Oerlikon mounts and life raft canister racks. The photo-etch also includes a variety of yardarms, parts for the Lynx helicopter, flight deck safety nets,
various platforms and supports, hangar roller door, hangar roof light bar, flight deck hold down grid, funnel badges and nameplates for the ships that can be built
with the kit and a variety of other detail parts. The photo-etch is very well done with beautiful relief etching.
