Awesome, in the true sense of the word.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Thanks for the compliments, guys.  :lol:  There's a few things I wished I could have done better. But for now, it is what it is. The lighting for the well deck and upper vehicle deck is still there and still works. But whether or not I turn it on at a contest for others to see, I don't know. How well the model lighting is visible depends on how well lit the contest venue room is. If the room is too bright, then the model lights won't show up that much at all. If the room has lower lighting levels, then there may be a better chance of seeing the model lighting.
Pics of the model lighting can be found on earlier pages of this thread. 
Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

Decided to add a little extra display to my hospital ship. I am going to create a second 7" x 7" display of LCAC's and aircraft to display in front of my hospital ship model. Whether this extra display will replace or be added to, the other landing craft and vehicle display I built earlier, I don't know.
For now, the extra smaller display I am making will showcase an alternative white paint scheme for the landing craft and/or aircraft. I may end up putting both landing craft displays in front of my hospital ship model at future contests just to show different alternative options. The helicopter will be suspended on a thin rod above and between the 2 LCAC's.
