US Navy Life Rafts for battleships class IOWA
There are thirty(30) resin US Navy life rafts and thirty(30) PE netting in the package along with a simple instruction sheet.
The package states US Navy Life Rafts for Iowa class battleships. I do know why, as this type of raft was used on many other class of ships.
All you need to do is clean up and resin flash on the bottom of the raft and then glue on the PE netting. Simple enough.
Be careful painting as the open areas between the netting is very small. as you can see in my painted raft photo the paint filled some of the small hole. But easy enough to clean out with a pin.
Highs: Very good details all around.Lows: Not really a low ... but be careful painting the netting.Verdict: Another very useful product from North Star Models. Mush better detail than the plastic rafts you have in the kits.
