From drawings most generously supplied by Colombamike and Paul 541 thank you.It's a bit of a bum working on 3 drawings simultainiously but worth it to get maximum use out of a good ref drawing. :P Plus I can get three ships out of the one hull :lol:

An excellent begining Bombhead.
I had hoped to see those carriers for a long time now.
I believe you are intending to do HMS Albion/HMS Bulwark and HMS Hermes as well?

Thanks mates.I was thinking of a Suez period Bulwark and Albion commando carrier with Wessex 5s most of the hard graft is done so it should be possible to do,especially if DP or some other kind shipmate could do some top view aircraft.Hermes is already done,but I did kitbash a Victorious as a platform for Pandas Scimitars.If this is acceptable I could re-do Hermes.

I'm with Novice :D Albion, Bulwark, Hermes (updated). You've got the hull right, and she's coming along beatifully. Just a suggestion, but maybe a bit more deep shade on the front hull flair?

The gun turrets you're using are the single enclosed US 3"/50; I'm not sure what they should be.

THe HMS Victorious had 6 twin 3"/50 gun mountings supplied from the US (along with SPS-6 radar) for use by the RN.
