I've come across this kit at my LHS. Got the Italeri issue for about 8 EUR. Being a former Marine I couldn't pass this one up. It would be my first ship build. My questions are:

Is there any AM kit out there to build the Tarawa to reflect modern times? The kit has the old radars etc. My goal is to model it in 2008 before the decomission

is there any photo etch available?

any information is helpful! thanks gents!
