|The numerous smaller resin parts all come on casting runners. The parts include the torpedo tubes, cowl vents in three styles, depth charges in two different
configurations, life rings and the bodies of the Breda 20mm/65 guns. With the running gear you get some options. Parts M7, M8 and M9 are the propeller
shafts/fairings with the propellers cast into them. If you wish to use the photo-etch propellers, then use parts L2, L3 and L4 and finish the propellers with the hubs,
parts L1. You may also opt for brass rod, which will require cutting off the fairings from either set of resin parts. The rudders are also provided. The remaining small
parts include two different binnacles, a search light, a smoke generator and other bits. As a bonus, at least in my opinion, you get 14 resin crew figures in a variety of
poses. Parts M2 are depth charge racks but they should be substituted with photo-etch parts 20. The resin parts are generally good but will require some clean up to
remove the wisps of excess resin film.
The photo-etch parts come on a large fret with a tiny extra fret with propellers. As indicated in the instructions, not all of the parts are to be used for this model,
which are quite a number. Some of the photo-etch are alternatives for corresponding resin parts. The photo-etch parts include pre-measured railings, parts for the
Breda 20mm/65 guns, the Breda 6.5mm guns with stand, torpedo storage racks, life rings, cable reels, mooring bitts, depth charge racks, an anchor, anchor chain,
anchor handling davit, wire spreaders, portholes with eyebrows, gun depression rails, propeller shaft struts and other detail parts. Some of the photo-etch parts for
the Breda 20mm/65 guns are used to detail and complete the resin gun, parts E3, but you also get parts to build completely photo-etch versions of those guns. There
is some relief etching with the photo-etch.
