Group;

Just recevied my order of two sets of Lion Roar IJN WWII 1/700 railing. I'm practicing on a 1/700 IJN Light Cruiser Sendai while I'm waiting for my 1/700 IJN Mogami to arrive in about a week. The Sendai is the first ship I have done in this scale and I have fallen pretty hard for IJN ships.

I want to Mogami to be a showpeace so I need plenty of practice. The question I have is what railings do I use from the fret that came in. I noticed a smaller set and a larger set. This is only the second time I have worked with PE rails and the other set was a 1/426 scale.

Do the larger set go to the deck?
Do the smaller set go to the superstructor and areas above the deck?

Any help would be great and thanks to this group and postings from others, my skills have really come along and Im really starting to enjoy the hobby and ship modeling.

Cheers

Sam

Sorry, I overlooked this post somehow. Generally I've noticed that the smaller spaced railing goes on smaller sections of the superstructure. I mainly use it there but will use it elsewhere on the model if the larger spaced sections will not fit.
