Although the label of this set is port holes, it actually comes with more.  Included is something I really like, the scuttle doors/hatches with four different options.  Open left, open right, open downward and closed.  The port holes that come with the set also have the same options for position.  Set provides 30 port holes in the closed position and 27 in the open position.  There are plenty of scuttle doors, with 113 in the open position and 33 closed.   The brass is very thin and has relief etch and will require careful handling as some of the parts are very small and will be difficult for the novice to handle.


Instructions comprise one page (8.5 by 11) document description of how handle photo etch basics and some examples of where to find some reference material.


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, #3572 German Deck Details, #3573 German Reels and #3575 German Vent Covers.
