|The rest of the parts are white metal and include the 4-inch gun barrel, Squid, cowl vents, twin 20mm Oerlikon mounts, searchlight, crow’s nest, Carley floats,
rudder and propeller. The white metal parts require a little more cleanup and are not as refined when compared to the small resin parts but they fit the bill. White
metal is malleable so be careful when handling the 4-inch gun and vent as can be easily bent.
The photo-etch brass is excellent, with lovely relief etching, and is quite extensive for a model this size. There are a number of pre-measured lengths of railing,
which helps to eliminate the need to measure and cut generic lengths of railing and facilitates assembly. In addition to the railings, the brass fret has inclined and
vertical ladders, lattice mast and associated parts for both an early and late fit, bridge platform supports, various yardarms and footropes, funnel cap grill, rocket
flare launchers for the side of the gun shield, parts to detail the boats, boat davits and cradles, radar lantern housing, radar antennas and aerials, wire antenna
spreader and various other detail parts. Ship name plates for most but not all of the Royal Navy ships are provided. As mentioned above, there is no decal sheet
provide for the pennant numbers and flags, so you will need to look for an alternate source.
