|The next largest part is the superstructure which also a lot of detail cast into it, such as watertight doors, lockers, a pair of cowl vents and vertical ladders. One of
the vents broke off but was inside the ziplock bag that contained the part. The opening underneath and the bottom edge have some excess resin that need to be
removed so that it will fit properly into the corresponding raised section on the deck. There is also a little bit of resin film the needs to be removed to open up a
breezeway on the forward section of this part. The locations for the forward 4-inch gun and bridge are scribed into the deck. The bridge housing is also extremely
well done, with the open bridge having a compass, binnacle, piping, lockers, running lights and the foot rings for the 20mm Oerlikons. A wee bit of casting plug
needs to be removed from bottom. The funnel is the other larger resin part in the kit and it is very well done with the external piping and grill cast into it.
The smaller resin parts include the midship gun platform for the 2-pounder guns, some smaller deck housings and a coaming with hatches. The weapon parts are
comprised of the 4-inch gun shields and mounts, the 2-pounder mounts and guns, the 20mm pedestals and guns, the parts for the hedgehog and depth charges for
the roll-off racks, storage racks and throwers. Other resin parts include the Type 271 radar lantern housing, anchor windlass, anchors, a trio of boats (motor
launch, whaler and dinghy), Carley floats, searchlights, running gear (rudder, propellers and shafts with struts), cowl vents in two sizes, crow’s nest, floater nets,
flag lockers and some smaller fittings. Most of the smaller resin parts come on casting blocks with fairly thin attachment points. The smaller resin parts are
generally well cast and clean, with some needing clean up of extra bits of resin or resin film, the like the openings in the 4-inch gun shields.
The brass photo-etch fret contains all of the railings in pre-measured lengths, inclined and vertical ladders, a pair of platforms with railings, bridge wing supports,
aft gun platform supports, depth charge roll off racks, depth charge storage racks, Carley float storage racks and mesh inserts, floater net baskets and brackets,
20mm shields and details, 2-pounder shields and details, parts for the HF/DF aerial, DF antenna, boat davits, boat rudders and cradles, depth charge handling
davits, various handwheels and other detail parts. The photo-etch is nicely done with some relief etching and with part numbers etched into the fret for easy
