Intro…

Just about every kit has little bumps going up bulkheads and funnels. To be honest they just look, bad. But, once again there are after market items that will help.

The Set…

This set only has one thing for your ships, hanging ladders. Well, hanging might be wrong, but that’s what they are listed as. These are actually vertical ladders that you see on the sides of funnels and running up bulkheads.

As with other newer sets from LionRoar the fret is covered with thin plastic to help you out when cutting your ladders out. The fret gives you a well over 3000 feet of ladders, if I did my math correct.


Thoughts…

Even though plastic kits are reaching levels of detail never seen before using the after market reels is a good way to ratchet up your build. Also, do not be afraid to get these to add to your builds. They are actually easy to use and it will make your build that much better.
SUMMARY
Highs: Another unique item to make your build just that much better.
Lows: Oh my EYES! These are small!
Verdict: Very good way to jazz up your build. Good value for the money.
