Regia Marina has released an update set for the Trumpeter Roma using Pontos detail parts. The set features a new aft wood deck, markings for Roma and the sister ships and new blackened anchor chain.
The deck is laser cut on a self adhesive simulated wood deck. The deck planking features the correct edge treatment found on the real ships. The deck fittings have the proper borders around them and the actual planking is very well done. Compare this to the plastic part lacking those features.

A length of blackened anchor chain will help make the kit come alive.
The decals are thick with a 3D look in gold. Very sharp!
The instructions are printed on front and back of the deck packaging. Pretty simple, but so is this set. 
Conclusions: A nice upgrade for your Roma. This is set #AF085  Deck wood for  kit Roma  Trumpeter 1/350 priced at 12,10€ for those located in the EU and about $13.50 for US members. You can pick and choose your upgrades rather than buying an all-inclusive set. More information can be found on the Regia Marina website.
