I am getting ready to start my WWII Flattops Campaign contribution, and I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good P/E set for a late war Essex-class carrier? I'll be building the USS Tiaconderoga (CV-14). I was considering the Tom's Model Works set, but I have been unable to locate one. How's the GMM set?

I used the complete WEM sets and can't fault it and you'll want for nothing as it's that complete.. (er, that's assuming you want 1:350 and not the 'kitchen sink' scale)

Thanks for the heads up on the WEM. Always seem to forget about them. Actually, I'm building the Hasagawa 1/700 Tiaconderoga. (Well, I think it's Hasagawa.)
