The new Dragon 1/350 Scharnhorst is out and while it includes some photo etch, the modeler may still want to add railings to finish off the kit. The highly detailed CAD that was used to produce the plastic kit was also used to produce this custom fit set of railings. This nicely packaged set includes all the extra railings needed to finish the kit.
The railings come in a variety of 2 and 3 bar with drooped chain where appropriate. They are already cut to length and numbered to match the instructions. All you have to do is bend them into shape and glue them on. A new Ensign jack and rigging is provided as well as some of the mast mounted antenna. 
The instruction sheet is a printed in color on two sides and features photos of the actual model with all the parts noted in their proper location. Close ups are included to help illustrate exactly were everything goes. 

If you want to upgrade your kit and take the guess work out of cutting and fitting the railings, this is the perfect set.  It s set lists for  $19.95 but for a limited time you can get it via the Online Special for $9.99 when purchased together with the Scharnhorst Kit.
