|Kit replacement parts include the perforated bridge and aft AA gun platform supports, other platform supports, forward gun depression rail, funnel handrails, boat davits, perforated mast platform support bracing, depth charge storage and roll-off racks,
RDF loop antenna and the Type 3 Mark 1 antenna. The latter is a multi-part affair but a significant improvement to the clunky kit version. Add-on detail parts include the funnel vent grill, additional gun depression railings, boat detail parts, mast details and
paravane support booms. Some of the replacement and add-on parts require modifying the corresponding kit part before using. There is one shortfall with this set; I have the Ukuru Type B kit, which needs six boat davits, but unfortunately the photo-etch
set only has four.
The instructions come on a single double-sided sheet of paper and are basic but clear and easy to follow. Photo-etch parts are identified by their image and for those that require folding and some assembly, there are diagrams showing how it’s done. For
the parts that are replacements for or to be used with kit parts, the corresponding kit part numbers are given. I did notice a typo related to the boat davits where it says it is a replacement for kit part D5, which is actually the RDF loop antenna. The
corresponding kit parts are actually D13.
