Something I have been wanting to do for years and finally did it on a whim – the Japanese Midway carriers in 1/1200. These are quickbuilds and are not quite finished. More detailing on the hulls needed. The wonky looking bridges are a trick of the camera. The decks are borrowed internet graphics downloaded, sized and printed and glued to balsa.

My brain is telling me to do Fuso and Yamashiro next, but my calendar is telling me not to….

If you decide to make Shokaku and Zuikako, make an extra pair. I want both. grin

Indeed, you are mid-way to completing an impressive IJN force!

Fantastic! We await the rest of the fleet.

Har! I laughed but I stopped mid-way through because some other enterprise came up.

Hee! I do. If I figure out how to wage carrier battles on the tabletop, you'll be hearing from me. Most of the 1/1200 Pacific War carriers are either crappy models or cost more than gold.
