Well, I finally finished all 6 of the Japanese Pearl Harbor carriers.

Started in April when Cap'n Crunch asked me to paint a Hiryu for him. Having procrastinated for years on repainting my Japanese carriers due to the intricate deck details I finally got underway. Subsequent requests for Kaga's and Akagi's put some more practice under the belt and I finally decided to paint them all (so that I wouldnt have to touch a Japanese carrier deck for the remainder of my years I hope Very Happy)

This weekend I finished up my last remaining carriers, Soryu and Zuikaku.

3 of them are Shapeways by Roe, 3 of them are WotC sculpts. 1/600 planes are by Tumbling Dice and Oddzial Osmy. Enjoy










And with their Air Groups (and no, I do not own that many planes (yet), I recycled them for each picture in case you wondered Smile)

Awesome painted and very detailed. So realistic that you really feel that they are close to start the first attack wave towards Pearl Harbor.

Slowly picking my lower jaw off the table and pushing back into contact with my upper jaw.
Awesome.

Superb - they look like the ships those crazy scale modellers put together, only these are a lot smaller!

Great job on getting a smooth finish - it really shows off the shading and highlighting on the complex hulls. Add in the perfect deck markings and the planes on deck and you've got a pretty jawdropping result right there!

Until I saw these images, I didn't think I could get any wood without a little blue pill.

Beyond amazing my good man, and nothing short of stellar.
