Taiho - Zuikaku

1/2000 trading kits:

Extending their lives until about the 60's so they'll retain their AA guns.

Zuikaku(top) will be modified into a LHD operating Harriers

Taiho(bottom) will have an angled flight deck installed and operate f-8 corsiar II's, a-4 skyhawks and navalized f-105 thunderchiefs.

Made a start on the tiny Harriers:

About 5mm wide and 7mm long, a bit of a pain in the butt to build but it will be worth it since the flight deck would look naked without any aircraft. Only hoping it will cast well otherwise I have to come up with a plan B.

1/2000? Just thinking about that size gives me an eyestrain headache! Will be interesting to see these two finished and sporting their air wings.
