Thank you, Thomas! As the real aircraft was part of CVW-5, it's a map of the area around NAS Atsugi!😉

Thank you all for you kind comments! Patrick, the deck is based on a free sketchup 3D model which i have corrected using google maps footage of CV-63 in Bremerton. I have made elevator #1 in 32nd scale as well, but more on that later! 🙂

Whauw! Cool! For a while I'm toying with the idea of putting a VF-154 F-14 next to a VAQ-136 EA-6B on a just arriving elevator but couldn't find decent plans of the #4 elevator, so I just let the idea simmer somewhere. Seeing your diorama has gotten it revamped however.

absolutely stunning... incredible details!!!!!

Hut ab vor dem Aufwand und erst recht dem Ergebnis! Wenns bei mir losgeht brauche ich nicht in meiner Navy Stehschütte graben: deine Fotos sind WIP-Fotos sind Referenz genug🙂

OMG! The detail is amazing. So much to look at I stare at one picture for minutes and then go to the next and do the same. The landaing gear really fascinated me.

Wow, every photo shows a work of art in its own right, so much detail. You wouldn't expect this level from any kit let alone scratch built. You are very courageous to attempt it, very patient to complete it and very talented to do so convincingly. This is true modelling at its best. I salute you.

will you be taking this beauty to Veldhoven?

Thank you all for your kind comments!

@Cedric, the canopies are 3D printed.

@Spanjaard: I have planned to bring my Viking and the RF-8 both of which will be on the contest table. I did not register the Prowler. I may bring it with me, maybe I'll decide to register it on Saturday. I have no table, so the contest is the only possibility for me to display models in Veldhoven.

i hope you do it 🙂
