|A common feature of Atlantic Models kits are white metal parts, which include the 4.5-inch gun barrels, rudder, single 40mm Bofors, the twin 40mm Bofors
barrels, 293 radar, parts for the Squid mortars, Carley rafts, propeller shaft “A” frames and the propellers. The white metal parts require a little more cleanup and are
not as refined in my opinion when compared to the small resin parts but they acceptable. White metal is malleable so be careful when handling any of the gun barrels
as they can be easily bent. A replacement turned brass barrel set for the 4.5-inch guns is available separately from Atlantic Models (ATBAR 35003).
As with all Peter Hall designs, the photo-etch brass is excellent with beautiful relief etching. The brass includes several lengths of stock and pre-measured railings
including a section for the foc’sle deck with an upsweep curve. Other parts include inclined and vertical ladders, parts for the lattice mast, various radar antennas,
boat davits, boat details, catwalks, shield and Hazemeyer fittings for the twin 40mm Bofors, anchors and chain, funnel cap grill and sirens, Squid motor rail tracks,
Carley float racks, several platform supports and other smaller detail parts.
