Great work, Martin! Also a good example how 3D-printed parts can really improve a mediocre kit.

Cheers, Walter

Too bad about the dust, but the finish on those decks does look VERY realistic.
Love the details, and also the decal work on the planes.

Bravo, Martin. :thumbs_up_1:

Excellent work. "Less is more" really does it. Not too many planes on deck, subtle weathering, just right ! Definately diserves the awards.

My favourite flat top camo in USN. Nice to see it done!

Having seen it in person, I can easily say that it does deserve all the kudos posted here.

The dust was a rare mis-step for Mr. Quinn.

Thanks all - appreciate the kind words, especially from my fellow plastic junkies!

Fine job and a great way to highlight Torpedo 8. Congratulations on the well-deserved awards, too. Did you lose any points for the 50-star flag?

LOL. Just my pride was dinged! Not sure how I messed that one up!

This one is even better in person! I really like the feel of the scene, as a carrier builder who always loads his decks up with lots of aircraft, I was really impressed with how "alive" the deck scene feels with such a small # of planes still on her. Well done! Martin had the correct flag on there, I swapped it out at the competition trying to give myself an edge.

Great job as always, Martin. I was going to attend the Hudson Valley show, but something came up at the last minute and I couldn't make it. Would have loved to see it in person. :thumbs_up_1:

I fully agree! Very good build of a questionable Trumpeter kit. Well done, Martin!

Just catching up, this does look good, nice to see one of these legendary carriers which helped keep things going before the Essex class arrived.
