Set of landing craft carriers/amphibious assault ships employed by the Japanese Army and Navy during WW2. From strarboard to port:
- Akitsu Maru [1944]; shorter and wider flight deck, with island structure further starboard (Nigitsu Maru never received these changes?)
- Akitsu Maru [1942]; also as Nigitsu Maru, AFAIK as completed conversions from passenger liners with flight decks, island structures inline with starboard beam
- Shinshu Maru [1942]**; purpose-built landing craft carrier; a.k.a. Ryujo Maru or Fuso Maru (development and construction was kept tight)
**forward main derrick arm is sprued underneath/within the hollow hull of the ship; also requires a short length of wire/plastic rod for the aft mainmast boom

Also includes 13x aircrafts to represent Kokusai Ki-76 aircrafts

*there will also be a set for IJN APA-style ships in due time
