The IJNS Midway Four CV's in 1/3000

Following on from the IJNS Deadly Six WIP post, more carriers take shape in 1/3000. The Hiryu and Soryu can now be fielded on "table" along with the Kaga and Akagi.

Viewed from high level recon:

All CV's are again from Navwar.

Dropping down to a lower level, in a less realistic berthed parade formation. The rest of the IJN and US Pacific Fleet are edging their way towards the painting table. I had fun painting these, although one has to reflect on the wisdom of those large "rising suns" make rather excellent aiming points :)

Two more to go to get the Deadly Six for the Pearl Harbour attack.

Very nice !

I am painting the same fleet with Navwar miniature too.
Are you painting all the fleet ?

Cheers Tfigs,

Yes, I am a bit of a Naval 1/3000 junkie. So from the Philippine Sea Battle Pack I purchased the rest of the IJN. I am now in the process of expanding the US Fleet to cover the conflict.

This is in addition to oodles if North Atlantic and Med stuff from WWI and WWII

Cheers Paul,

Whether I ever get to "use them" is another matter ;)

Pacific carrier battles tend to lend themselves to abstract board games

Although I have seen some excellent convention games on the web
