USS Iwo Jima
By Peter Van Buren
Iwo Jima
1/700 Iwo Jima Helicopter Carrier (Pitroad-HiMold)
The kit includes the Ch-53's and '46's shown on deck; the other helos are from a Pitroad detail set.

The kit is well-done as far as it goes, but does not include any PE.  All of the side platforms and mast platforms have to be cut from included sheet styrene. it is not hard to do, but for the price ($69 at Pacific Front) I expected more.

That all said, I don't know of any other kit for this class of ship, so to me the extra work was worth it.
