the control tops for either
USS Pennsylvania or USS Arizona in 1:350 scale. These one-piece resin control tops are an elegant, clean,

Arizona kit. Added to the Fittings Reviews Section.

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. Added to the
Multi-Media Upgrade Set Reviews Section.

USS Lionfish SS-298 Sail/Fairwater, Model Monkey 1:350 Scale, Review by Felix Bustelo - The Lionfish fairwater is a welcome
addition to the growing
Model Monkey catalog and will save the modeler the trouble of having to scratch-build one if you wish to
model a
Balao class submarine that had a similar fairwater. Added to the Fittings Reviews Section.
