5 Star
 
USS Massachusetts Upgrade Set for the Trumpeter Kit, 5 Star Model 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - This is an extremely extensive and well-done upgrade set which will turn the Trumpeter Massachusetts
kit into something outstanding. There is no area of the model not covered in some manner with this detail set and because of that, I would recommend it for experience modelers and not for someone just starting to
working with photo-etch. Some of the parts could be omitted according to your appetite for super-detailing or patience.
USS England Upgrade Set, 5 Star 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - The 5 Star brass photo-etch, turned brass and resin set for the Trumpeter 1:350 scale USS England is an extremely extensive and
well-done upgrade set which will turn a good kit into something outstanding. There is no area of the model not covered in some manner with this detail set and because of that, I would recommend it for experience
modelers and not for someone just starting to working with photo-etch. Some of the parts could be omitted according to your appetite for super-detailing or patience.
 
Infini Model
 
I-400, Japanese Submarine Upgrade Set for the Tamiya Kit, Infini Model 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - The Tamiya Models I-400 kit builds into a very good model out of the box. The kit has a small
photo-etch fret with a limited amount of parts that does help but doesn’t go far enough in the opinion of
Felix Bustelo. If you want to take your model farther, then Infini Model has exactly what you need with their
dedicated detail set.
Shimakaze, Japanese Destroyer 1944 Upgrade Set for the Hasegawa Kit, Infini Model 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - The Infini Model upgrade set for the Hasegawa Shimakaze in 1:350 scale is a very
extensive and well-done detail set which will turn a very good kit into something outstanding. There is no area of the model not covered in some manner with this detail set and because of that, I would recommend it
for experience modelers and not for someone just starting to working with photo-etch.
Yukikaze, Japanese Destroyer 1945 Upgrade Set, Infini Model 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - The Infini Model upgrade set for the Tamiya 1:350 scale Japanese destroyer Yukikaze 1945 is a very extensive
and well-done detail set which will turn a very good kit into something outstanding. There is no area of the model not covered in some manner with this detail set and because of that, I would recommend it for
experience modelers and not for someone just starting to working with photo-etch.
 
KA Models
 
HMS Hood, Multi Media Deluxe Upgrade Set for the Trumpeter 1:200 Scale Kit, KA Models 1:200 Scale - There is no doubt about it, the KA Models Deluxe Upgrade Set for the Trumpeter HMS Hood in 1:200
scale is not cheap. As with other upgrade sets, an excellent upgrade set can costs as much as the kit itself, if not more. This
KA Models set is indeed excellent, especially the deluxe version that throws in everything
short of Admiral Holland's reading glasses.
Scharnhorst & Gneisenau, Multi Media Upgrade Set for the Tamiya Kits, KA Models 1:700 Scale - The KA Models detail set designed for the Tamiya 1:700 scale Scharnhorst and Gneisenau is an excellent
departure point for super detailing either kit. Of course it is designed for replacing wooden and metal decking but ohhh---those enameled crests are wonderful!
 
Pontos Model
 
HMS Warspite, Multi Media Upgrade Set for the Academy Kit, Pontos Model 1:350 Scale - If you really want to go whole-hog in super detailing the Academy HMS Warspite in 1:350 scale, you can't go wrong
with the
Pontos Model multi-media set for this kit. Pontos gives the modeler everything in every medium. From extremely thin wooden decks, to four frets of relief-etched brass, to machine turned brass gun
barrels, including 20mm Oerlikons snd 40mm Pom-Poms to a gamut of resin replacement parts, the
Pontos set is totally comprehensive.
USS Independence CVL22 1943, Multi Media Upgrade Set for the Dragon Kit, Pontos Model 1:350 Scale - This Multi Media upgrade set is from Pontos Model and is designed for the Dragon 1:350 scale model
of the
USS Independence CVL22. It is labeled Type 1 1943 for a mid-war fit, as there are optional parts included for another fit. Pontos includedes a pre-stained wooden flight deck, relief-etched brass photo-etch
fret, decal sheet and anchor chain.  
 
Tetra Model Works
 
JMSDF Atago, Aegis Destroyer, Tetra Model Works 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - While the basic photo-etch provided by Trumpeter in the Atago kit may satisfy some modelers, others may want a more
extensive set that doesn’t go other the top with hundreds of tiny parts. In the opinion of
Felix Bustelo, the Tetra Model Works set fits that description perfectly.
USS Intrepid CV-11, Angle Deck Airraft Carrier Upgrade Set, Tetra Model Works 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - The Intrepid CV-11 Detail Up Set is very extensive and is a super detailer’s delight.Felix
doesn’t think there is really anything overlooked. Some of the subassemblies are a bit complex, with lots of individual parts, so Felix would recommend it for modelers with a good deal of experience working with
photo-etch. If you are willing to take the plunge, you will have a hell of an
Intrepid model to proudly display.
