NEW FLOWER CLASS FROM BLACK CAT

Black Cat Models has recently released a gorgeous new 1/350 Flower-class corvette, HMCS Snowberry K166

French maritime specialist Black Cat Models has a superb reputation for its 3D-printed resin aftermarket products, but the firm has also established an equally impressive ship kit range, with one of its more recent offerings being HMCS Snowberry K166.

This new 1/350 scale release (350016b) is one of five Flower-class corvettes released by the company, and is presented as a mixed-media ensemble, comprising a cast resin main hull, 3D-printed fittings and equipment plus a photo-etched (PE) brass fret. The list of goodies is completed – courtesy of Master Model – by a turned brass mast, crossmember, jack stand and several stanchions, while a generic decal sheet supplies markings for HMCS Snowberry K166 and multiple other Flower-class corvettes.
