The Ships & Co. Kilauea class kit is very good overall. It has few parts so assembly is quick and
easy. The decal sheet has more decals than those needed for the kit so I used several decals on other kits. Same for the photo-etch set. It is more a general use photo-etch and there’s more stuff than you may need for the kit. It is complete for a 1970s Kilauea and a good starting point for an 1980s-1990s one. I chose to build the kit as the last of the class. I substituted the kit's Phalanx with JAG's and I added modern satcom antennas, SRBOC chaff launchers and various electronics that were not included in the kit.
