Commanders/Iron Shipwright continues to add to their line of 1:350 scale early American cruisers and battleships with the armoured cruiser, New York ACR2. I love this kit and it is a nice addition to my growing fleet. The model built well with no major problems. The instructions are lacking and I was not able to locate any detailed reference material. I replaced the resin mast parts provide with the kit with brass rod, added some signal flags and brass gun barrels from Steve Nuttall. This is a very good kit and highly recommended for the Dreadnought era enthusiast.
