    Hi all

    This is my second aircraft carrier (1st was USS Essex 1:300 from Maly Modelarz), and for the first time so big. (about 1,20 m)
    After 1 year and 4 months since started, IJN Zuikaku is finished :grin:

    Wow!

    Looks like 1 year and 4 months well spent! You must be very proud of the result. Your Zuikaku is very impressive. Of all scales available today, highly detailed 1/200 scale models can't be surpassed if done well. Congratulations!

    That belongs in a museum somewhere, preserved for a long time, for many people to see.
