I just picked some of this up to test on aluminum, claims it works with pot metal.
I would test on a non-essential piece first.

Guess what the brown truck brought me yesterday!

First impressions:

Huge box! Well packaged.

Great PE set. I really don't see the need for an aftermarket kit.

The Arados are not molded in clear. The also seems to be no clear canopy---but a unique PE canopy frame. Not sure how I feel about this. An optional clear would have been nice.

The hull is quite solid, especially with stiffeners.

I was disappointed not to see metal main guns. The bonus turret kit has them and they are very nice. Looks like an upgrade is in order.

Darn shame Ocean Voyage is no longer around. They sure made some nice IJN kits in this & other scales. You'll see photos of their 1/200 Kongo on the following link alongside another Bismarck.
