Carrier "Junyo", Zero A6M5 by Saito Hisao

A brilliantly realistic diorama by master modeller Saito Hisao depicting the deck of aircraft carrier "Junyo" during the battle for the Mariana Islands in June 1944.
For the carrier deck he used modified Edward parts while the figures come from various companies. The Zero is a Hasegawa in 1/48, with all the markings handmade using numerous maskings.

Have to say, first glance at the photo fooled me. I thought it was a colorized photo taken during the war.
