That's sharp looking! That would be cool to paint in all sorts of bright civilian schemes.

Makes the old Devastator look pretty good!
The water is very realistic. Makes me want to go to the beach!

Beautiful!!  It's difficult to say what's more impressive, the model or the base with that realistic-looking water.

That says it.   Star & meatball sure looks painted on, not a decal ruff surface.   :smiley:

Knowing "slow" reputation of Devastator, hauling those floats around must make it oh so slow.
