About this Diorama

It was in 1999 that I planned the diorama of Carrier Strike Force. In the first plan, I was going to build all in a half year. But, I escalated reconstruction of this model. As a result, I spent 2 half years to the building and could complete a good model. But I will build a little more easy model next time, because it is serious for me to build such a model.
