#405, "1:250 Amati photo etch kit?"


          

I got a great deal on a complete, 100 issue, unopened set of the Hachette Titanic(same as the Amati model)and I am currently on issue 45 and loving the build so far. I noticed that it comes with a fair amount of photo etch parts but is not in any way complete.

The window card pieces in the set are infamously rubbish and I have been altering them myself as I cant afford to buy the complete etch set right now.

So I was wondering if:

A: Anyone has any spare/unwanted etch pieces for this model for sale and
B: What do people think are the most important etch pieces to get if I could only get a few?

Thanks for reading.

Hi Wonderer

Here is a link that contains all the photo etch parts to replace all the cardboard wall sections in the Amati Kit. Plus a whole lot more to update different parts as well. There is one that i am very much looking forward to and it is this one below. The dome will look fantastic when it is built up. There are also etched lifeboat covers with the ropes and the extra lifeboat railings that were not included in the Amati kit.
These is the options for the dome. You can use the 2 circular ones for both domes without modification. However the Oval dome is actually accurate for the forward Staircase, but you will need to modify the housing for it.
