I had to look at it twice as I was speechless the first time. Incredible detail and amazing artwork.

Outstanding work again, really looks like its been through it and ready for a refit. Would love to know how long a project like this takes you.

Outstanding work on that decking, aircraft are all seemingly single, not painted as one which most, if not all people paint them, flaps ? Does this get better ?

Wow!, great weathering - good variaty and intelligent use of colors - lots of details, really a build you can look at over again as new details seems to pop up every time I look at it.

Splendid work!

You really made the deck come alive. What figures did you use?

Thank you to everyone here for your kind remarks.
The figures used are resin cast by Goffy models.I personally purchased them off from Ebay.They are a bit more work than the normal etched figures but the end result is immeasurably more realistic.
