|This kit is a recent issue by M T Miniatures, and features HMS Bristol, a one-off destroyer project by the Royal
Navy. The design features a triple funnel configuration, and the timber decks make this one of the last ships to use
this material as the main deck covering. The ship was present for the South Atlantic Falklands campaign, and is part
of my South Atlantic presentation which includes HMS Burdock 1941.
The M T Miniatures kit I believed could be presented in a number of ways depending on skill level, and what display
requirements there might be. In my appraisal of the kit I identified six ways to complete the kit :
1/. Unpainted but ready-made.
2/. Ready-made but painted (M T Miniatures market this option).
3/. Build the kit out of the box.
4/. Build the kit out of the box and paint it.
5/. Build the kit out of the box and super detail it with dedicated photo etch.
6/. Look at the various improvements and revisions to the kit and make necessary alterations and include dedicated
photo etch. Because of the manufacturing process, and a need to keep the kits cost effective, many features are
summarised or blocked out to make the mastering easier.
