  1. Hello. My current project is an amphibious assault ship ROKS Dokdo from Academy. This snap-tite kit is very convenient and allows no gap. There are only two Dokdo class ships. In my opinion, Academy won't make 1/350 Dokdo kit because South Korea decided to make bigger aircraft carrier ship. This kit is fairly easy and fast. I bought Tetra models PE kit for additional detail. It is the first time I play with PE... Pretty tough, but very challenge and exciting work. It is so tiny that my eyes hurt. 😭 The kit has only three helicopters. So I bought another amphibious assault ship kit. ROKS Dokdo was made based on USS Wasp class amphibious assault ship. It is only 20% shorter than Wasp class. I bought HobbyBoss USS WASP LHD-1 1/700. I'll transfer some deck planes from the kit to here. Combined operation of ROKS and USFK. Here is a tip : The HobbyBoss USS Wasp class 1/700 Kits has some errors regarding scaling. When HobbyBoss (AKA Trumpeter) made 1/700 kit from 1/350, they forgot to resize parts... In this case, they forgot to resize tie down padeyes. The holes are 1/350 size. As a result, the huge holes look weird... I'll close all holes when I build this kit in near future. There are more same errors such as over sized decals. You may need to fix them for realistic expression. (One of not accurate part.) To compare with the HobbyBoss kit, the Academy kit has minor issues. However, it is very hard to find because this ship is very rare and references are insufficient. I'll complete Dokdo kit this month. I hope you enjoy my first PE work. ( I already lost 8 tiny tiny parts. )
