This is my first excursion into ship building since my primary school days. Built OOB just to see if I would be interested in it. I used decals to represent wood decking For the base I used styrodur base, watercolour paper and vallejo pacific ocean acrylic and vallejo water foam. I like to look to model ships but I am reluctant to use those big PE sets.

Gidday Lanmi, she looks very good. I work in a similar scale (1/600) and I don't use PE either, although other modelers do a superb job with it. I haven't done a Japanese carrier yet but would like to. If it turns out half as good as this I'll be happy. Well done. Regards, Jeff.

Wow, this is great! Finally someone who builds the Pearl Harbor carriers - thank you. What did you use for water?

Thank you, for the water I used Vallejo Pacific ocean acrylic effect. For the waves I used Vallejo Foam effect.

Very neat building and painting, and that seascape along with weathering really brings the model to life! I'm not a huge carrier guy, but the wooden decks with colorful markings really set these IJN ones apart.
