thanks,
Love the design very simple and compact. I have one question on the platform below the three domes their is an object that is square in shape. I am guessing that is one of the of SLQ-32 Regardless this is a very interesting design not sure how they can add to it as the ship goes through overhauls and electronics are added. I think I am going to use the Wasp Kit and make this island as part of new upgrade to give more deck space.

Yes, it's the SEWIP Block 2 antenna upgrade for the SLQ-32 (aka SLQ-32(v)6) - here's LockMart's brochure on it: http://www.lockheedmartin.com/content/d ... ochure.pdf

I thought maybe we should re-think this project to a LAS (Landing Air Support) Ship.
The U.S. Navy really does not consider this an important factor to consider in the design of replacement ships/Classes. If you really break down the America she is designed for OSPREY and other Prime Movers not for Air Support of Operations. She was billed to support the Joint Strike A/C and AV-8B's because of the deleted well deck and Vehicle storage/support areas. So let's change the forward part of the ship with the ski ramp. I know the US Navy loves to have the additional spots for Parking and Prepping but with a simple configuration change we can omit adding systems that are not needed and we can add the additional hangar space to replace the lost deck spots.
Your thoughts?

"Among one of the largest departures for the SASC, their bill sets aside $30 million for the Navy for a preliminary design effort to create a light carrier for the service."

Oh yeah! I see an America + 100' and an angled deck with 2 catapults forward. It just makes me wonder if they would be steam or EM. #goddamnsteam! :heh:

Question has any one looked at the JMSDF New class of DDH. I have the 1/700 model coming full Hull.
I was going to see if I can modify the stern of my wasp to reflect the stern of this class and add that new reduce space island.

Hi guys, Long time no post.
At the risk of jumping straight into the fire, it sees that what everybody is leaning toward amounts to a RN Queen Elizabeth. Or am I missing something?
