my third attempt at drawing a real life ship, and something a bit more complex than the type 1934A destroyers that I've currently got on long-term project list.

the aircraft carrier Ryujo was a Japanese light aircraft carrier built in the early 1930s, she was small and lightly built to exploit a loophole in the Washington naval Treaty, however because of her light construction she proved to be top heavy and very unstable in moderate sea conditions.

Ryujo:
as of 1933

1936 - TBA
1939 - TBA
1942 - TBA

Looking very good indeed, can't wait to see the other later iterations of this ship.

Looks very nice for a third attempt, though I agree with Colombamike, airwings! :D

Lovely drawing and yes add the air-wing for each drawing, and a top view would be very much appreciated.
