White Ensign Models continues to turn out some very interesting detail sets in their 1/350 scale range. This particular release is more like a "super set" in that it has just about everything you'll need on the flight deck of Trumpeter's 1/350 USS Nimitz. Not only does this set dress up the deck aircraft, it provides interiors for these aircraft as well - in 1/350 scale!
