White Ensign Models Review
reviewed by Timothy Dike
The new Trumpeter 1/350 Nimitz Class Carrier has some really detailed aircraft included with it. They build up much like larger scale models and include clear canopies. But some of you will not be satisfied to just add a few details. Those of you that are infected with the superdetail bug will take comfort in this new set from White Ensign Models. This one includes parts to SUPERdetail the aircraft.
The set is relief etched and you can even make out the instruments panels and control stick. The ejection seats feature relief etching and have the folding points relief etched. The seats are designed to work in conjunction with parts of the plastic seats. A new forward landing gear minus the wheels and a tail hook are also included. click images

The instructions are well written and well illustrated. They show the various parts and how they assemble and work with the kit parts.

Conclusions: This is an excellent photo etch set for the die hard 1/350 aircraft modeler. You may go insane trying to apply the little details, but if you plan on showing your aircraft with the canopy open, then you really need to get this set.
