Another design I made myself, using a copy of the hull of my other WIP, the Battlecruiser Sandy Island
. It's not quite done yet, but it's mostly done.
This is the composite aircraft carrier Cape Pembroke
. This interesting warship has an interesting history. It didn't start out out life as an aircraft carrier. She was originally the Sandbore Cay Class Battleship Big Sand Cay
. The other Sandbore Cay Battleships were either converted to museums, sunk as breakwaters, or broken up for scrap. In 1937, the only two Sandbore Cay Class Battleships left were the Sandbore Cay
- which had been converted into a museum, and the Big Sand Cay
. Originally scheduled to be scrapped, the Navy held that decision back and decided to have her converted into an aircraft carrier, Randomville's 3rd. She served in WWII, but survived without being bombed or torpedoed, or attacked by Japanese warships. She was converted into a Museum on the request of Rear Admiral Kevin Rink, younger brother of the late Admiral Thomas Rink, who went down with his ship during the battle of Cape Pembroke on April 9 1942. His death was in vain, as the Japanese eventually took Cape Pembroke, although the Free People's Army of Randomville were able to keep the Japs from entering Port Stanley.
