I always liked the A4E "Scooter". It always came across to me like an aerial MGB or some other cool sports vehicle. It also looked like one of those aircraft that you "wear" rather than sit in. If I had my druthers, I'd pick one of these up for a spin. This one is trying to drop on the deck of the USS Oriskany. (Yes, I know...he's just visiting...) Just a long percolating goof with probably more to come in the same vein.
A4e Skyhawk...long forgotten free on the web, very nicely done piece of work. Some tinkering.
USS Oriskany CV-34: free by Gacek on Sketchup warehouse...I also could not resist tinkering with it.
Various aircraft, tugs and such that are there but invisible for all practical purposes...from here and there with thanks to whoever knows he/she made them.

THanks for the generous comments and observations. Texboy...I actually think the deck looks pretty abandoned too. I did feel better about it because I referenced a photo of the Oriskany during recovery, and most of the activity was forward, concerned with moving recovered aircraft in that area. THey are there in the render though. You can't see it because of angle and lighting, but there are 3 Phantoms with folded wings in the forward area, an E2C Hawkeye, and a small tug. In the aft area of the island, there are two small tugs and an SH-2 Sea Sprite on the elevator. I consoled myself with the knowledge if not he visual.
Very impressive. Good work. I like such pictures. I saw the model of Oriskany on Sketchup Warehouse but was unsatisfied with it. But from distance no one sees the drawbacks of this model. There are a lot of models on Sketchup Warehouse, not really good but useful for distance pictures.
