White Ensign's 1/350 USN Radars set, like the 1/700 set, the modeler with superior options for radar details. Every major type of radar is represented here so you can equip a ship with everything from SA radar to the latest SK-2 dish. Over 20 different radar antennas are included, many with relief etched detail.


Included on this fret are the following radars;
  • CXAM
  • SK
  • SK-2
  • CXAM-1
  • SM/SM-1
  • SP
  • SR
  • SA
  • SC
  • SC2/SC4
  • TDY
  • MK25
  • MK3
  • MK8
  • SG
  • MK27
  • MK22
  • MK4/MK12


Two double-sided sheets of instruction are included, with WEM's standard "General Instructions for working with Photo Etched Metal."

The individual radar steps include not only assembly information, but guidance on subjects and appropriate time periods, as well as some history. Many of the steps are virtually identical to the 1/700 set. I would like some greater detail bending the Mk8 FC antenna though.

Another great set from White Ensign Models. If you need radars for a USN a ship you are building, this set can't be beat! I like the inclusion of both early and late war radars. Priced at USD$14.50 from WEM.
