|There are a number of detail sets on the market that spruce up the topsides of the many 1/400 ships on the market today. But if you build full hull ships you will notice one glaring inaccuracy, the plastic props. They rarely even resemble what a propeller is supposed to look like. Much of this is because the molding capabilities are limited when it comes to reproducing think parts that will survive the injection molding process.|
|This set includes a set of 3, 4, and 5 bladed props. All the modeler has to do is bend the blades into shape and attach them to the kit supplied shafts. Note I have lightly sanded the brass fret to get the set to show up on my scanner.|
Note: image scanned in B&W to allow higher resolution without increasing file size.
|Conclusions: This is set number FM 400-1 retailing for $10.00. While this set has been around for a while it still is a great addition to your modern sub fleet. Check out this and all the other photo etch sets on Flagships website.|
