Hey guys,

I am trying to put something together, but am struggling finding the last part. I need some ships that have depth charge launchers, full hull preferred. Also prefer US boat, but can make do with IJN or KM as well.

Hi Paul,

L'Arsenal makes a resin 1/350 US Navy 110' Sub Chaser SC-497 Class. L'Arsenal also produces a 1/350 173' US Navy PC. Both kits have a pair of depth charge throwers and the PC includes roll off racks as well. No depth charges included but they are easy enough to scratch build. Some White Ensign PE end caps would be a nice touch

I have both. They are decent kits. The smallSC came in zip lock bag - some of the finer detail resin parts did not fare well in that packaging and the large PE fret bent, so I recommend transferring parts to a small cardboard box if you get that kit. The large PC was well packaged in a very sturdy cardboard box.
