Special notes: I put Zuiho's late war camo scheme on the Junyo since I was young and foolish and LOVED the design of it. Also, now we all know that these are not the colours of the original camo of the Zuiho.
I attempted a rather sad attempt at bomb damage (don't get me wrong I'm still immensly proud of the ship) as the deck would have probably buckled upwards instead of down, but I must have had good karma at the time as Junyo was actually damaged by a bomb in this general area during her service! All I'd have to do to make her more realistic is mangle the funnel as it was damaged in this same attack.
