FineScale Modeler reviews the 1/350 scale plastic model aircraft carrier kit.

Merit’s kit is finely molded in gray plastic with just a few areas of flash and nice detail throughout, including eyebrow gutters above the portholes. The air wing comprises five Fairey Swordfish torpedo bombers, four Fairey Fulmar fighters, and four Blackburn Skua dive-bombers. All are molded in gray plastic with good detail; the biplane Swordfish are kits themselves with 15 parts, including photo-etched (PE) struts and rigging, but there’s no provision to fold the wings. Decals provide aircraft roundels and the ship’s flight-deck stripes.
