|2004 has been quite a year for ship modelers, with the new Trumpeter Nimitz making a real splash on the market. But since most of us are not content to build out of the box anymore so it's Gold Medal Models to the rescue with this new photo etch set. Besides the standard railings and radar's, this set has a whole bunch of extra details that that will really bring life to your model.|
|This set is relief etched out of .005" (five thousands) thick brass sheet. The parts are incredibly fine and items such as the flight deck nets with their fine netting and integrated braces are going to really make your kit stand out in a crowd. The hanger door and elevator railings have a realistic drooped chain look.|
|Additional detail shots of the photo
|The instructions are well written and well illustrated. They show enough
detail view to leave little doubt as to where everything goes. The instructions
show the way the photo etch is incorporated with the kit supplied parts.
They also show some of the differences in the ships of this class.
Gold Medal Models continues to set the standard for well written instructions.
|Included in the set:
This set can also be used, along with GMM No. 350-29 (1/350 CVN Extra Details) to convert the Nimitz kit into other ships of the class. It is an excellent set for the Nimitz and her sister ships. It is made specifically for this kit and will take a nice kit and make it into a show stopper. It has a retail price of $42.00 US and is available direct from Gold Medal Models or wherever fine ship accessories are sold.
