White Ensign Models has stepped up to the challenge of dressing up the beautiful Revell 1/72 Gato-Class submarine. This set provides options that will provide a distinctive fitting to some Gato-Class boats - these where the propeller guards that were mounted saddle-style to the rear of the hull.
If you remember your WWII submarine movies, these are the guards that were keeping the cables that tethered Japanese mines from getting tangled up in the propeller or stern planes. This set provides the guards, the stern saddle mounting, and support frames.
My sincere thanks to White Ensign Models for this review sample.
