Neat design...bridge sorta-kinda reminds me of a 1940s version of the bridge Hosho had in the 1930s. Great work!

I think that "cute" is not usually a word to use for aircraft carriers, but this would have been just that.

One nitpick though: The flightdeck aft of the break in the main deck, it's only a line thick. I really think you should go and try for a double line, or something to give an illusion of thickness, because right now there's the feel that there isn't a flight deck immediately after the break.

Amazing work BH!
I'd never even heard of this conversion before. Where is the book scan from? I'm intrigued to find out more.

Thanks mates. I can honestly say that was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. :shock:
There is a mention of the carrier conversion in the foot notes of page 199 in Friedmans British Carrier Aviation and I found the plan on the net.

Nicely done Bombhead, this is indeed an interesting ship and a great representation of her!

It looks good, but the top and side view doesn't match up.
