airbornegrove26's Space Aircraft Carrier

So the Governor General of Sector 6 and I are embarking on a wild and zany campaign, which requires us to build giant space aircraft carriers. I will be sharing my progress here. Check out the blogs for moawr info tho if you would like.

I got the inspiration from this ship, which appeared in an old episode of Thundarr the Barbarian

Getting everything aligned for the build

After figuring out where everything would go I began getting the deck shape cut down.

Thanks guys!

Today's progress covers sinking the command tower into the hangar deck and starting to glue the raft supports to the main ship.

Re: airbornerove26's Space Aircraft Carrier

Awesome idea and execution. Just wanted to kind of make a suggestion. They operate in space right? So what is the purpose of a long flight deck? They don't need a long run up to get airborne - a slight push from the deck should be sufficient to move away from the carrier. So instead of a steam catapult they could be spring launched? Or what about a literal catapult. Some kind of trebauchet style launch device?

This looks like a very ambitious project. I can't imagine what it's gonna look like fully painted.
Anything with snake mountain has to be awesome:)
