Now I've noted several, remarkably-complex builds in 1:350 scale - especially IJN WWII battle-cruisers - but none of them come even close to the level of detail you've put (absolutely beautifully) into this one, Sean! Looking at your pics (which I don't really get the chance to do closely, until posting them here), I got that same feeling as viewing those "Where's Waldo"-type posters: something new to discover, in every square inch. With more than a few remarkable items - like (especially) your SeaHawks - being true, little gems unto themselves.
And the rest of the Pontos Set: windshield wipers for the bridge windows?!! Just Off the F-ing Hook! And then, over every tidbit - every last one of the above details, whether accessorized or scratched - your weathering is absolutely drop-dead, spot-on gorgeous, Sean: I can feel the salt, the grime and the rust, from here!
If this is what "I finish very few" models looks like - then, let me tell you: I'm All For It, buddy!
Bravo-Zulu on a GREAT build, and a landmark submission to ModelFleet, Sean!
