         No, I am not going to talk about her present situation. I am going to remodel her in an unusual way. I got one at a yard sale for 50 cents. Whatta Mess! Good Hull though. Looked even better without all those pesky Portholes and other windows. 

          Now, added two decks. to the hull heighth! Then Created this very unusual deck. It has some large rounded protrusions on it. These are the caps for a tube launched strike fighter system. Yeah, a What If!  Because of her speed she can get somewhere fast for a ship. Augment the carriers and then reload the Fighters in a tunnel that is built off to one side of the deck.

       No! The pilots would be hands off at this time. Computer controls every landing. The Island ( if you want to call it that ) is nestled in the center of all those bumps right midships. It looks like the sail area of a very large submarine.

       By having all enclosed and sealed against the sea.This vessel will then be able to sail along for the same or more time than a regular carrier. Port-Calls would be a necessity for crew Morale. This would be handled by Motor launches from the side garages at Waterline level.

         She would Not be Grey! She would be a mix of Pacific Sea Blue and Atlantic Blue Black. She would also be Nuclear powered with a Magneto-Heterodyne Tunnel drive system! ( If you don't know what that is) read some Oregon Files books by Clive Cussler. Again, Trying NOT to Waste plastic!

TB, you've got to start posting pictures!  Do you at least have a cell phone for pics?

Heck, email them to me and I will do it for you.

 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

Be Careful what you ask for Bill!
