Midway!

Start of a smallish project.   Well, it could be a fairly large project but my part of it is small.  I’m doing the Japanese Carrier Strike Force for Midway.  Here are the carriers:

I guess you can read the labels :-).  The models are ghq.  This shot pretty much features the decals from Flight Deck decals: Link to Flight Deck Decals.  They are very nice. I was worried about whether they would be hard to use because of their size, but they went on really smoothly.

You may be able to see on the Kaga that the red bled into the white and gray of the decal.  I’m not sure exactly why.  I noticed this on one of the other decals as well, but on that one it only bled around the edge of the gray.  I painted over the gray with Foundry Slate Gray C which is pretty close to a perfect match for the gray on these decals.  I had a couple of touch up spots on the wooden flight decks and I used Golden Skin from Reaper for those.  I think I’ll paint some planes and put them on front of Kaga to better hide the bleed.

Now all I have to do is paint a couple of battleshipes, a couple of cruisers, a bunch of destroyers and I’ll be all done!
