The drawing is based as pictures of US defence papers posted at newpapers

The design is odd, crasy, don't work, wacko, whatever, but your comment makes this design a personal drawing ;)

Hmmm, this "drawing" look like a kind of internal propaganda, without serious study
A Normandie hull with a "Yorktown" island & and 3/4 full flight-deck :?

Just one thing... In '36 Normandie had an aft deckhouse added aft of the Café-Grill and replacing the zig zag bench area. Also during that refit the "NORMANDIE" letters were removed and a squash court was added in the area, so that area might be different.

Normandie's internal arrangements for looks and the benefit of passengers were most unsuitable for conversion to a carrier, especially the way the funnel uptakes were designed. Friedman's book on British carriers has comments on the poor value from conversions of large liners compared to purpose designed carriers. The Queens were considered, and drawings kept for complete emergencies, but they were judged far more valuable as troopships. One of them could bring a whole division across the Atlantic in 4 days.

Alvama,
I found decisives refs & sources about USS Lafayette AP-53
(the news-papers carrier version was a pure journalists speculation)
You still have interested to improve your USS Lafayette AP-53 drawing ?
