Included in this generic set are ten different types of vents and doors, all in the open position with the door closed option next to it as a separate part.

The brass is very thin and has relief etch. The relief etch is used to give the doors some depth. 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 with basic description of how to handle photo etch. It also describes how open vent holes should be painted dark as although open and hollow, there is a screen covering which is too fine to detail, even for photo etch.


This generic set will be useful for any 1/350 surface German WWII warship. 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 #3574 German Port Holes.
