It seems that I've been in painting mood lately and I've finished quite a few things... not least of which is these Imperial Japanese Aircraft Carriers. I created some very detailed decals to make these carriers possible, and I'm very pleased with how they've turned out.
Now, bear with me while I flood you with photos...
How would history have been different if all 6 of these guys had been present at Midway?
Akagi - Nagumo's flagship
Very clean and sharp lines on the deck. I went with a clean look, but the decks can easily be weathered after the decals are applied.
Kaga and Akagi - big and tall
Hiryu and Soryu - definitely have a smaller and lower profile
Shokaku and Zuikaku - These guys would see plenty of action even though they missed out at Midway.
Here is a good photo for scale
And to further dwarf these ships, look how small they are in comparison to a bottle of Vallejo paint! This is the Hiryu with an Atlanta class CL alongside for comparison.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these photos. Let me know what you think. Would you buy these decals if I set up shop and made them available?
