By now you are aware of the new CAD designed weapons and fittings produced by Paper Lab. if not you are missing out. I have reviewed a few of these and everytime I look at these new sets, I am blown away. These white metal 24" searchlights are the best ones I have seen in this scale so far. Not only are they exceptionally detailed, they are durable and not as fragile as resin parts. The parts are almost too small to photograph properly. These parts represent the standard 24" searchlight fitted to just about every US Navy ship around. These parts look just like the drawings I have and they are as true to scale as you are going to get.

In a word, awesome! A must have for 700 scale US Navy fans. If you want realistic parts on your 1/700 scale ships, skip the old Skywave weapons sets and go with parts that are true to scale and even more detailed. Paper Lab detail parts are currently available from  4 dealers: Pacific Front Hobbies, Morning Sunshine Models, White Ensign Models and L'Arsenal. Stay tuned for more from Paper Lab, this is but one of many accessories now available with much more planned.

This is set # FT70/004  US Navy 24" Searchlight 10 per package and should carry a retail price of around $5.00. More information can be found by clicking their logo below.
