|Diether von Roeder
The kit comes with 5 spues and a base molded in medium gray. The Hull is split along the keel and there are score marks for cutting the kit down to the waterline or adding the pedestals. Four cross braces add internal strength and the three part deck tightens it all up.
The open back turreted main guns come in four pieces including the breech block. The barrels are not "slide molded" so you might want to drill the muzzels or get aftermarket Brass barrels. The 37 mm guns consist of a five piece assembly lacking much detail, but will work for most people.
Sorely lacking in this kit is even the slightest amount of Photo etch. Plan on picking up a set of railings, and maybe some doors, hatches and cable reels.
The ship was painted overall RAL7001 Hellgrau 50KMS with Dunkel Blaugrau decks, Oxide Red Hull
again, pretty straight forward...
I only painted the portholes on one side.. They just really looked too big, so I can display the ship on either side as I feel the need.
A kit in need of a PE set and other aftermarket parts.
