That's 1:200, HOLY S***. I guess those aircraft carriers really are big.
Is it your own design?
yeah, fairly big luckily for the allies it never saw action looks like a great build so far!

I don't think that it would have been any great fun trying to land a Bf 109 on a carrier deck, they had problems enough on a normal airstrip.
Looks like a nice build though. Now if someone would just do a Majestic class carrier...hint hint...
Dang man, how much do those books weigh???? Only problem is you cant do your homework now cause your books are attempting to crush your ship
This is a big project yuki.
I can't wait to see it finished.
Is this the actual scale of the original model or has it been blown up?
Woow, now that is a big ship.... however, I do really believe that that jet is just a tiny little out of scale to fit on it
As a beginner I had no idea that large papermodels could be so strong, on the other hand, the only paper models I can make are the free downloads
I really wonder is this really paper/card model.... The structure are so powerful (3 books!)
