Showcase Models Australia 1/350 Models HMAS Collins submarine

Mark Karolus reviews Showcase Models Australia's 1/350 scale HMAS Collins plastic model submarine kit:

"The kit is quite simple with just 23 parts and a brass nameplate. Five of the styrene parts are clear, comprising the display stand and a single-piece conning tower; the rest are molded in gray plastic. The back of the box has a two-step construction sequence and a third step for decal placement. The Cartograf decals provided for each of the six boats are excellent. The box top and side panel are your color guides."
