Wow! I bet those are super tiny. There's no way I could paint those but maybe one color.

Thanks Mike,
Thankfully they are wearing all white with black boots so that's easy. Just a drop of flesh on the face and hands and a touch of black for the hair and you're done. Since they all have black hair no need to change colors there.

Here are the first 3 aircraft attached to the aft deck. Kates with the torpedoes. I need to put 36 AC on the deck so there's not a lot of room to work with. It looks like the wings are touching but they're not.

Yup. What He said. My goodness.
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

They look so much bigger on deck!
March as one, Don't look back
Odin's sons... Attack!
Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall

Thanks guys.
I'm attaching little wheel chocks to the wheels prior to sticking them down. For the wood part I'm thinking of adding tie downs as well :hmm:
I found this short video of the air operations on the Zuikaku. 1:18 to 1:25 show the planes tied down before the crew boards. I don't know it this practice was used during the Pearl attack since I can't find definitive information but it should add some interest. The would be easy to do with some stretched sprue and very steady hands, the later of which I'm getting short of.
I don't have nearly enough squatting crew to pull off what being shown but I have a few that should give the idea.
