Joseph Low's computer ship models

This is a page about the Japanesse Navy of WW2 I've discovered recently.

There are several very pretty pictures of Japanesse ships' computer models. Smth like this for example:

I found them rather impressive.

Yes, it's a beautiful site and Ed Low is an artist!
This was actually a work in progress at one point. You could watch as he added different parts to the ship--which, by the way is an Akizuki class destroyer. For a really good plastic kit of this ship, try Nichimo's 1/200th scale Akizuki.
But looking at Ed's work, one has to be amazed at the sheer technical skill that went into making these images and the hard work he put into it.
Excellent, excellent stuff! Cheers, D
