With the vast array of photo etch available to the naval modeler for stuff "above the deck", it's easy to forget the very visible items "below the deck"... portholes!

Flyhawk soars in to save the day from under-detailed hulls with this set of PE portholes. As always, ultra-sharp rendering is Flyhawk's standard with these little beauties. Four different types of ports are covered, including two with covers; with enough to do a couple battleships or a few destroyers. The two standard porthole types include eyebrows, while the covered types include port, ring, and cover.
SUMMARY
Highs: Excellent detail. Enough to do multiple ships.
Lows: None!
Verdict: An excellent upgrade for all IJN ships.
