These are my 1:2400 aircraft Carriers with my deck decals (considering that I can't paint my way out of a paper bag, decals for small-scale ships are the oly way to go, for me)

Panzerschiffe IJN Zuiho

Panzerschiffe IJN Kaga

Very nice.

Can you do white decals?
Or in the white examples did you leave them unprinted and paint the base white under?

Sorry if I am demnse but to confirm you make your own decals. If so how ? … Microsoft Paint , decal paper and a printer

BTW great job they look fantastic !. Painting details is one reason why I am hesitant to do carriers

A follow up to this news item……

Thanks for the pix. Good to see how they look on different manufacturers.

I went for the 1/6000 decals from Toshach, and will pick these up for my 2400s as well.

Thanks for your comments!

I purchased an ALPs printer, but it was damaged in shipping. As a result, I had to be more creative in producing white decals. My decals are printed with a hi res color laser printer on clear decal paper. The ships are primed and painted gloss white, then I apply the decals using decal setting and decal softening solutions. For more details, check out my website:

I'm nearly finished with my 1:2400 scale line. When I'm done, I will be creating the same decals in 1:1200/1:1250, 1:1800, 1:3000, and 1:6000 scales.

Hi all!
I have good news and bad news… The good news is that I'm releasing a new product, Italian and German air recognition symbols in 1:2400 scale. The bad news is that I am temporarily withdrawing one product, German, Italian, and British carrier decks, until I can redesign them (probably in a week or so). I've discovered that the Panzerschiffe DKM Graf Zeppelin is 100 scale feet (1/2 inch) shorter than the GHQ model. I was actually speechless when I discovered this! I knew something was up when the Panzerschiffe Aquila had no foredeck, when the plans I had showed a prominent foredeck. So, I'm actually creating two sets; one, in scale, for the detail-minded GHQ/Seabattle crowd, and one for the budget-minded Panzerschiffe crowd.

Once I get this unpleasantness taken care of, I'll set about converting the 1:2400 decals to 1:3000 and 1:6000. As an added bonus, I plan to add planes to the flight decks of the smaller scale carriers!

Take care!

Hi folks!
I've just realeased a couple new products: 1:2400 Italian and German air recognition symbols, 1:3000 CV decals for the USN, IJN, DKM, Italian Navy and Royal Navy, and 1:6000 scale decals for everybody. Soon, I'll also offer 1:6000 scale CV decks with appropriate aircraft.

Bobs website for Pomroy Productions seems to be down. Anyone know if he is still in business? Interested in his IJN 1/2400th carrier decals.
