3D Model Parts
 
Colorado Class Fighting Tops 1941, 3D Model Parts 1:700 Scale, Review by Steve Backer - Trumpeter has released 1:700 scale kits for West Virginia, Maryland, Tennessee and California in their 1941 fits with their lovely cagemasts
and fighting tops. However, the kit supplied fighting tops have solid windows and you have to paint them to create an illusion of depth. The tops varied slightly between the two classes.
3D Model Parts has produced resin "Fighting
Tops" for both classes. This shows those for the
Colorado Class. You will instantly notice the open windows, ready to be glazed, and the lovely detail of these tops, which make an excellent upgrade for the plastic Trumpeter parts.
Tennessee Class Fighting Tops 1941, 3D Model Parts 1:700 Scale, Review by Steve Backer - Trumpeter has produced a USS California in her 1941 fit in 1:700 scale. The plastic fighting tops or too wide and have solid plastic
windows.
3D Model Parts has produced set U717 to replicate the fighting tops for USS California or sistership USS Tennessee. The resin tops have a narrower profile than the Trumpeter plastic version and open windows.
Cage Masts for the Big Five, 3D Model Parts 1:700 Scale, Review by Steve Backer - Trumpeter has released 1:700 scale models of the California, Maryland and West Virginia as the ships appeared at Pearl Harbor on December 7,
1941 with two cage masts. The kits come with brass photo-etch cage masts that must be molded to the right shape and also create a vertical seams where the edges meet.
3D Model Parts has come up with a different solution,
pre-formed resin cage masts.
USN Mk 37 AA Directors & Mk 51 Light AA Directors, 3D Model Parts 1:700 Scale - The Mk 37 director was the culmination of the evolution of gun directors in the USN in World War Two. First begun in 1936,the Mk 37 was
first tested in 1939. For the first time the range finding mechanism was called a computer. The Mk 51 AA director could be found on almost every warship in the fleet at the end of the war. This small, visually operated system, played a
significant role in reducing the threat of Kamikazes. With
3D Model Parts set U714 you get all of your USN AA director needs. The set provides four late model Mk 37 Mod 17 directors and sixteen Mk 51 directors. All parts are resin
but there is no photo-etch for the actual radars for the Mk 37.

wooden decks for many of the most popular model ships produced by Aoshima, Tamiya, Trumpeter, Dragon, Hasegawa, and Revell, as well as large sheets of decking, which you can customize for kits that do not yet have a model
specific sheet available. The
ArtwoxModel wooden decks set for the 1:700 scale Aoshima Yamashiro is an impressive product, especially given the ease with which the deck cut-outs are punched out. It makes me want to go out and
buy the kit just so I can build it with the

product. Amazingly thin and easy to fit, I recommend it without qualifications. I haven't tried fitting it to the
Niko or Samek models of the class, but is designed for the Combrig kits and I can report that it fitted like a glove on the
Combrig USS Georgia BB-15 model. The deck is for the early fit of the ships with anchor washboards.

make those in the latter camp very happy.
 
L'Arsenal
 
Vought OS2U Kingfisher, L'Arsenal 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - The Vought OS2U Kingfisher from L’Arsenal 2.0 can be used on many different 1:350 scale plastic and resin kits of United States Navy battleships and
cruisers to replace the ones that come with the kit if you are not satisfied with those. I for one will use a pair on my Banner
Arizona build in place of the kit’s versions.
Grumman S-2 Tracker and Grumman E-1 Tracer Aircraft, L'Arsenal 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - Overall the 1:350 scale kits of the Grumman S-2 Tracker and E-1 Tracer by L'Arsenal are good aircraft accessory sets
that would look great sitting on the flight deck of a 1960s early 1970s era aircraft carrier, such as the Gallery
Intrepid, Tamiya Enterprise or Trumpeter Kitty Hawk or Constellation. The lack of adequate assembly instructions mars an
otherwise quality product.
Willey's MB Jeep, L'Arsenal 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - Overall the L'Arsenal Willey's MB Jeep set is a good accessory set with numerous applications and diorama possibilities and 10 to a bag you do get a lot for your

Charles de Gaulle, Foch, Clemenceau and Jeanne d’Arc.
Bell UH-1 Iroquois "Huey" Helicopter, L'Arsenal 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - This is good and simple aircraft diorama accessory and it could be used in a variety of scenes be it Vietnam vignettes using
the Swifts and Pibbers produced by
L’Arsenal or perhaps on the flight deck of a carrier or amphibious assault ship. Ultimately it is up to the modeler but whatever you choose the L’Arsenal Hueys will look great.

French company are among the best in the world. President Sarkozy, as Grand Master of the Légion d'honneur, it is time to recognize the excellence of

Forecastle Replacement for the Tamiya Missouri, L'Arsenal 1:350 Scale - Anyone familiar with the products of Jacques Druel and L’Arsenal knows that this French company specializes in 1:350 scale USN fittings, even more
than the warships of France. Well the French Connection has heard the anguished cries of modelers of the Tamiya
Missouri and produced an upgrade set specifically for that kit. Now modelers can come out of the wilderness and into
the light with a multimedia replacement forecastle for the Mighty Mo.
La Fayette, French Frigate 1:400 Scale Detail Set for the Heller Kit, from L'Arsenal - Today is June 6, 2004 and sixty years ago, British, Canadians, Free French and Americans landed on the beaches of Normandy to free Europe
from fascist tyranny. Although it would be entirely appropriate to review a subject that was present for Operation Overlord, it is equally appropriate on June 6 to review a model warship from the location of the invasion, Normandy.
L’
Arsenal
of Normandie, more specifically the Caen area, British AO for Monty and Operation Goodwood, now produces a resin and brass detailing set for the Heller La Fayette. Do you need one for your frigate, only you can answer that

Mulsannne's Corner
 
USS Tunny SSG-282, Regulus Missile Submarine Conversion Set, Mulsanne's Corner 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - The USS Tunny SSG-282 Conversion set is an excellent example of a 3-D printed accessory. With this set
you can transform an AFV Club 1:350 scale
Gato class fleet boat into one of the pioneering missile carrying submarines, which visually was quite an oddity. The conversion set requires the cutting and removal of parts, so I would
recommend it to someone with intermediate modelling skills

Shipping Crates, Niko Models 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - These sets would look great in a dockside scene waiting to be loaded on to a Liberty Ship or a peacetime scene with cargo ship or liner. You will probably need to

Engineering Equipment, Niko Models 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - These little engineer machines could be used in many diorama scenes: dockside being loaded on a Liberty Ship or even working on the docks or in a

North Star Models
 
Royal Navy Bridge Equipment, North Star Models 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo- The North Star Models 1:350 scale Royal Navy Bridge Equipment set is interesting and can be used to add detail or replace kit parts for some
larger Royal Navy ships like a cruiser or larger, as they would be fitted with the larger air-defense officer’s sights. The smaller items would be suitable for smaller ships, like destroyers or frigates, as well as their larger counterparts.
Kriegsmarine Figures, North Star Models 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - The level of detail found on the North Star Models 1:350 scale Kriegsmarine figures is like nothing I have seen in crew figures and certainly raises
the level. I am pretty sure that I do not have the skill level to paint these figures in such a way to take advantage of it. I just don’t know if I can paint the buttons on the officer uniforms or the eagle on the crew caps gold and pick out
other details to do them justice but I am willing to try.

when completed. Aircraft in 1:350 scale really belong in a diorama and this is a perfect subject to build a scene around. With the different marking options, you could also place a
C-46 in a Marine airstrip on an island or in post-war
Alaskan setting.
Multiple Ejector Racks with Mk. 82 Bombs, SSN Modellau 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo -vThis set will nicely complement an air wing on the deck of a model of a 1:350 scale modern U.S. Navy carrier be it the old Tamiya

USN Ordnance Trolleys, SSN Modellbau 1:350 Scale, Review by Steve Backer - Now you don't have to tie up aircraft elevators and constipate the flight cycle by moving aircraft from the flight deck to the hangar to load new ordnance.

PBM Mariner Flying Boat, SSN Modelbau 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - Overall, the SSN Modellbau PBM Mariner in 1:350 Scale is a very well done kit which can be built standalone but really deserves to be in a diorama
setting. The kit provides options but it is ultimately up to the modeler to decide how they wish to display this little gem.

extended and two with wing tips raised.
Crusader F8U, The Last Gun Fighter, Starfighter Decals' Resin Aircraft 1:540 Scale - The 1956 Revell  Forrestal surely could have used some Crusaders, the hottest fighter in 1960. You still can find the early Revell kits of

Lightning P-38 & Thunderbolt P-47 Deck Cargo, Toms Modelworks 1:350 Scale - All right Gyrenes! I know! Your tried and true F4Fs just don’t have the range to reach up to Bougainville to go after Yamamoto. What we need for
this mission is a bird with long legs. What we need for this mission is a bird that packs a punch. What we need for this mission is the Lockheed Lightning. Since neither the USN nor the USMC operates them, we’ll have to call in the
USAAF pukes! Call in the Lightnings!

this flying boat but it will require some effort. The waterline version can be used in a diorama setting or on its own in a seascape and you can build the full-hull version mounted on a brass rod for display.
