This is Aoshima's 1:700 scale HMS Illustrious and it was my first warship attempt in years. The kit was improved with Gold Metal Models photo-etched parts. The escort is a Tamiya O Class destroyer. The sea is wall filler spread over an old picture frame and sculpted with a paintbrush, then painted with cheap art acrylics.
