Very well done, just two notes, both about the meatball on the flight deck. First, pretty sure it didn't have it, as it would have made a great target for divebombers, second, it looks kinda fake compared to the rest of the image.

Oh, OK, so you just haven't finished it yet. With regards to the existence of the meatball it appears that it was painted on especially for the Midway operation.

Wonderful work in progress. Not yet having the red primer hull color for below the waterline makes her look that much higher.

From another era when carriers were not cranked out on an assembly line and often used up other hulls like in this case a cancelled battlecruiser, the same way Saratoga came to be.

Your weathered planking really gives this work character.

Yeah... even today, aircraft carriers are not exactly cranked out on an assembly line. Building even one is a huge undertaking, and while individual sections may be prefabricated, each carrier is basically hand assembled from those sections in the dry dock. Which is why no two carriers are the same. The Nimitz class are all built on the same lines, to the same basic design, but each carrier is also different from the others of the class. Oh, and the Saratoga was actually the second ship the US built that way, the first being the Lexington. After the Saratoga though, all US carriers were designed from the keel up as carriers.

That flag made a nice red target for dive bombers to drop their bombs on.

And if I remember on May 14th, 1945, CV(N)-6 USS Enterprise,(The Big E, Lucky E, by the US; The Grey Ghost, and The Galloping Ghost by the Japanese) had her forward elevador blown about a go 400ft (120m) into the air before it fell into the Pacific, when a Japanese bomb laden Kamikaze slamed into her. And did you know Japan bombed the US main Land, and if you don't know what I'm talking about, then just google "Japanese ballon bombs and you'll see how they did it, and they had built submarines that could carry, launch, and retrive fighter planes as well.

wow great detail, most of the models and other sources don't have the slanted deck.

Of course major design flaw by the Japanese, putting a big red bull's eye on their deck like that :)

I agree with you on that, because it just made nice red target for Big E's dive bombers to hit with their bombs.

And was almost found by Dr. Ballard (Titanic) but for too much time taken locating Yorktown's wreck.
