Flyhawk has a superdetail set out for the new Aoshima 1/350 IJN Isuzu kit that will allow you to turn that kit into a museum quality model. The set is very extensive and replaces the thick overscale plastic parts with photo etch, resin and turned brass parts that are closer to scale size.
|The first fret includes parts to make up the Type 96 Triple 25 mm gun mounts. They are made up of several different parts, some relief etched to give them more detail.||Click images
|This fret has boat parts to super-detail the ships boats. New decks, cabins and railings.|
|New thin platforms are superior to the plastic ones in the Aoshima kit. Nice diamond plate tread and open mesh grates add another level of realism.|
|More platforms and bracing details. Funnel louvers are pose-able. Lots of gussets and bracing details.|
|More platforms and some superstructure parts. Footrails for the funnels, bracing, rigging and other details.|
|More platforms, most with attached rails so all you don't have to struggle with gluing them properly to the edge. You will love the open mesh relief etched to show the bracing behind.|
|A new bow deck plate with diamond plate detailing and smooth anchorways. Funnel bases also have nice diamond plate detail.|
|Railing with drooping chain, and boat davits are the main parts here. New fold-up anchors are finely etched.|
|More davits, cable reel assemblies, and lifeboat boarding ladders are included here.|
|Various sized ammo boxes, and more railings and boarding ladders here.|
|Left and right hand doors that can be posed open have front and rear detailing.|
|This larger fret includes the bulk of the railings, two bar solid and drooping chain styles. Ladders and outrigger booms for the boats also included.|
|Type 89 12.7 CM 40 Cal Guns are made up of fine resin, with CNC machined gun barrels and complimentary photo etch. Separate instructions are included. Brass depth charges and mast parts help provide scale size parts for the kit.|
|The instructions are four pages. The sheets are about 7"
x 21" so I scanned them in half sheets. The are well illustrated with 3D
assembly views color coded and a mix of actual photos showing the assembly
A great set for those who want to take their kit to the next level. Smartly engineered to allow the parts to be folded in logical ways, this set will allow for more precise assemblies for those of us who love PE, but have a hard time locating parts.
