This is some spectacular work! This is amazing seeing the before and after sitting side by side. Great work! You are a true artist at this scale.

As always, I love your work Chris but how on earth you get decals on 1/700 scale aircraft is beyond me! :shock:

Colors are a problem for reference as they changed some and like the aircraft, varied from nation to nation. The Japanese carriers were very different looking from the familiar U.S. ones. Your extra work looks fine to me. Some of the "in water" dioramas in the small scales look fantastic.

I think your work is great. I don't know much about the ships, but man you do good work.
