etched brass fret is a godsend for collectors and modelers of 1200/1250 scale ships.
The fret contains 80 inches of 3-bar railing. This equates to over 8,000
scale feet of railing in 1250 scale, enough to detail many ships. More importantly,
the railing is very delicate and "in-scale". 4-bar railing would have resulted
in the individual rails being too delicate, so Tom's Modelworks wisely settled on 3-bar.
The difference between 3-bar and 4-bar is not noticeable in 1200/1250 scale.
railing to a 1250 scale ship can result in a most impressive display piece. I
suggest using "white glue" (Elmer's
is the most commonly available brand in the USA) to affix railing. Simply touch the
bottom rail to a bit of white glue and place on the deck. The glue sets up
surprisingly fast and is very forgiving. A botched installation is easily fixed. A
bit of water will dissolve the white glue enabling you to remove and re-affix the railing.
I highly recomment this product. It is available for US $12.50 from Tom's Modelworks or Pacific Front.
