  1. That looks great, Won-Hui. Just like Dick Best described it.

    BTW - if you're interested, the number for Dick's plane was "B1," right where you have the "6" if you want to change that.

  2. This looks amazing, Won-hui!
    Congratulations!

  3. Looks terrific, Won-Hui, love the pictures.

    • The picture is not clear because the background light is dimmed to maximize the flame effect. The picture seems to be blurred as the level has been raised.

  4. This is a great diorama, Won-hui @won-huilee
    The fire and smoke are very realistic as well as the sharp turn maneuver of the carrier.
    Good idea to take that picture with the dive bomber in front of it.

  5. Wow, i am at a loss of words. So amazing, so realistic! The explosion looks frightening...thinking of those boys burning and drowning there.

  6. Another well done display! Thank you for the vids on your techniques.

  7. Very cool! You always amaze with your "special effects."

  8. Pretty amazing stuff, Won-hui (@won-huilee). The video was fun to watch, and I like the way you gradually built up the color in the smoke on the carrier. Well done.

  9. Another outstanding work, Won-hui!

  10. Won-hui, I always enjoy your work, and this is another fine example of your excellent talent.
    As for the #6 SBD, I think that was actually an SBD flown by pilot Lt Simon Garfunkel that joined up with the Enterprise group, after becoming separated from his original squadron, therefore you might be accidentally right !
    At least that's the story I'd stick with!
