This is a simple little set that provides deck hatch covers, some open frames and locker covers.  The set provides nine different types of common deck hatches.  Of these, there are frames and details for five types for the open position.   I'll refer to the image of the photo etch.

The photo etch is made from very thin brass and is relief etched.  The parts are very delicate so you will want to handle the door frames with care.


Instructions for such a set aren't really needed, but a one page detail sheet is provided which gives basic details on how to handle photo etch, tips on research and diagrams of the types of hatches and locker covers.


This generic set will be useful for any 1/350 surface German WWII warship. This will be an important set as some of these details will be missing on some bulkheads or will be of poor detail.  Arrival of this photo etch is in enough time for the release of Trumpeters 1/350 Prinz Eugen. Highly recommend this set to add super detail to your build. Also released with this set is four others in 1/350 that go well with this set #3571 German Naval Doors, #3573 German Reels , #3574 German Port Holes and #3575 German Vent Covers.
