    That's 1:200, HOLY S***. I guess those aircraft carriers really are big.

    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... :)

    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 :(
