but this forum is for ship drawings and not nation building
Perhaps so, but I like to know that what I've put together actually will work. I recongnize that just because you can cut and paste a Kirov Superstructure to a Nimitz hull to produce the ultimate "Battlecarrier" doesn't mean it's a good idea, or even a workable one. Sometimes, you don't even know, based just on the drawings if an idea will work. Case in point, was my attempt to upgrade the OHP on the last board. It appeared to be a simple thing, but I didn't know about that stupid support beam on the bow, that prevented you from cutting into the deck. That was very informative, and while I'm sure I could have gotten the same info elsewhere, being able to talk to people who are both artists and naval enthusiasts gives a unique perspective, which is why I frequent the site.
