Ok, the Shokaku model is large but to even raise a virtual sweat on a 64bit 2.1 GHz system with just 4Gb RAM and as much again in "readyboost" I had to stack the flight deck with tiny lo-res aircraft(from the RPublishing/BeyondVR Akagi bundle), add wakes and import, via Poser, two destroyers and a combat air patrol of A6M2's with pilots. The final Vue file is 168Mb but Vue 11 still rendered it at 1600x900 without a hitch. So I say don't hesitate- Shokaku is ready for fleet action!!! Next time I'll start with two carriers and see how far I get.
A scattering of teeny tiny lo-res sailors modelled in Shade 10.
a dozen or so Zeros, Kates and Vals from the Akagi model - RPublishing/BeyondVR
The "Reisen 21" bundle- Motokami
Kagerohu destroyer model - got this some time ago, lost the link unfortunately
Thanks for viewing and comments...

Yeah, looks great. Let's go to the battle... ;-) BTW... I still have to make the 1942 version of the Lexington. I began modeling the old 1.1 inch quadruple AAA and now it waits to be finished. The 20mm gun I have modeled for LCI and can now use it on Lexington too.

Another really fine one, Brian. You have a real knack for the "right there with 'em" point of view. These fine pieces have a cinematic flavor to them. I also like your water atmosphere combos...the ships look like they belong there.
