|The kit comes with two relief-etched brass photo-etch frets. With numerous brass platforms and towers, the brass photo-etch make this kit more complex than the
standard model and therefore may be too complex for beginners in using photo-etch. However, with the wealth of brass parts that covers this kit, it is certainly an
attractive build for almost anyone. Both frets have film protective covers that will need to be removed before removing the brass parts from the fret. Fret A covers
platforms, masts and towers with two stern platforms, large radome tower and platform, forecastle mast, foremast with signal lines and fittings, stern walkways.
Bridge platform and equipment, launch platforms, data communication faces, funnel ventilation grills, crane arms, stern light tower, equipment frames, whip
antennas, and large cable reel platform. The A fret also includes anchor chain, some railings, inclined ladders with rung steps instead of treads and relief-etched name
plats for all four ships in the class. The smaller B fret concentrates on railings, with about 2/3 of the fret covering the railings. Some railings have solid bulkheads as
part of them. Many have life buoys and/or solid plates. This fret also has four boat davit frames, propeller shroud frames, propellers and a small platform.
