As you, the audience, may have noticed, the Tamiya 1/350 model of the USS Enterprise with the hull number CVN-65 is a sturdy kit with many benefits especially in the basic design. To further enhance the kit here comes one offering by White Ensign Models and is dedicated to one specific issue: The anchors

The Packaging…

I received my copy wrapped in clear air bubble foil. Upon removing the foil a clear plastic bag is revealed containing the kit parts.

The Content…

This is a WYSIWYG(what You See Is What You Get) kit. The anchors are made out of white metal with acceptable sharp and clear edges. The anchors are ready to use and require minor clean up.
I included a comparison photo alongside the Tamiya kit solution for you to figure the advantages.

Result and Conclusion…

A nice enhancement if compared to the anchors e.g. as provided with the Tamiya 1/350 Enterprise solution. These Anchors work for many modern aircraft carriers.
Highs: More detailed enhancement compared to kit given styrene parts. This is a fully shaped anchor which will give more flexibility when displaying your model.
Lows: None Noted
Verdict: Highly recommended no matter the skill level of the modeler.
