The main parts contained within this set are the four rectangular and
two circular screens for the engine deck. There are also parts to provide
mesh for the small port that was formerly used to attach a snorkel tube
on early production Panthers, as well as new filler caps that flank that

for the hull rear plate, a reflector light and new mounts for the tubular
convoy light mount are also provided. Finally, there are two oval-shaped

set, ought to give a modeler all he wants for a nicely detailed finished
