Reviewed by Sean Hert

Early in 2010, the 1/350 USS Wasp LHD-1 kit was released, and has now been followed by a 1/350 USS Iwo Jima. If you want to fully populate your LHD, or other modern USN ship with a flight deck, with forklifts, tractors and deck equipment, this set is for you.

This accessory set includes 2 each of the following aircraft:

  1. Large Crash Crane
  2. Fire Tractor
  3. Small Forklift
  4. Large Forlift
  5. Oxygen Trailer
  6. Tow Tractor
  7. Crashtruck
  8. Tow Bar
