This is the Deluxe kit with some photo etch parts. Nothing else was added except Ushi 0.03mm rigging. To be honest, I didn't use some of the photo etch. The model is very good detail and high quality production. I used the PE davits and wished I'd used the moulded parts. The result is so good that I decided to show it's beaty in pristine condition - no weathering or sea diorama - this is going on a stand or in a case. That said, I did some pin wash, a bit of matt varnish and rust on chains.
