Some 1/2400 Aircraft Carriers and 1/285th Tanks

It's been a long while since I've painted anything...  so here are a few recently completed Aircraft Carriers.  These are GHQ 1/2400 and they make use of my line of deck decals.

Let's start with the Ark Royal...  pretty fancy looking ship! 


The Ark Royal helped track down the Bismarck in May 1941.


Only to be sunk by a U-Boat torpedo in November that year.


Here is the Italian Carrier Aquila.


She was never completed and eventually scrapped in the early 50's.  So this deck pattern is purely speculation :)


The Imperial Japanese Navy's first carrier was the "Hosho".


And she actually survived the War.  Although due to her outdated design, she really didn't see much action.


And when you compare her to the Ark Royal and Aquila...  you can see she was a pretty small Carrier.


Now...  the real show begins.  If you saw my post from a few weeks ago, you noticed that my wife can paint miniatures; infantry in particular.  This past week she gave some Soviet and German armor a try...  and they turned out awesome!


Panther D...


Panther A and D's...


Same vehicles from a slightly lower angle.


Soviet T-34/85's...


At a lower angle.


I have to say that I am very impressed with my wife's abilities.  She's interested in painting some terrain (buildings), Aircraft, and even 1/2400 Naval Vessels; so more photos will be coming soon!

Thanks for visiting!
