A set of 2 anchors for fast battleships of the North Carolina, South Dakota, Iowa, and Montana classes, as well as Alaska class large cruisers, is available separately (click here).
Assembly instructions: remove all parts from the sprue, insert the shank through the bottom of the anchor. Do not glue the shank to the anchor. A small retaining pin is needed to hold the shank in the crown (the bottom of the flukes). Use another material such as a small wire, about 0.7mm in diameter. Insert your retaining pin through the small hole at the bottom of the anchor and glue in place. The shank will then swivel freely.
These parts are designed for a tight fit. While producing exceptional detail, acrylic plastic is extremely brittle and breaks easily. Trim parts, if necessary, rather than force them into place.
