The Set...


This set is a fine set of catwalks for your USN carriers. These catwalks typically went around the flight deck but this set includes a strip of double railed walkways that can be used on more open areas below the flight deck.


Impressions...

The quality is excellent. You can see the circular perforation on the bottoms of all the walkways and several recessed watertight door sections which were lower that the main level of the catwalk around the flight deck. The set is pretty good and includes a good assortment of most walkway pieces but was to frugal on the corner sections in my opinion. The instructions and diagrams were a big help and made things very clear on using the set.
SUMMARY
Highs: High detail; Good Assortment of most pieces; Excellent instructions
Lows: Too few corner sections
Verdict: A nice set that will make that flight deck stand out as your 1:700 carrier displays this fine catwalk.

About Anthony Kochevar (ajkochev)
FROM: UTAH, UNITED STATES

I've modeled ships as a teen and started the hobby again in 2005. For some reason I got into the history of the Japanese Navy at this time and started building ships of this navy. I also do N Scale model railroading, reef aquariums and a few video games.
