Spectacular! Who would have thought that flying saucers on a carrier would look so awesome  :wub:

What a magnificent way to annoy the JMN - there's so much junk on the internet and in print about Nazi flying saucers that you could easily find some 'research' to back it up :thumbsup:
There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.

Well that's just silly and incorrect, because as everyone knows the Graf Zeppelin was equipped with the same Vril engines
as the saucers and flew. Modelling it hull-borne, how pedestrian.  :wacko:

Who's been Playing 'Naval Ops:Warship Gunner'??? they had something like that Among the Aircraft you could Equip in the Game! Very Cool Pic & I Agree some JMN's would be Well POed about it ;D ;D Any more?

That seems to be the only picture taken.
My JMN moment wasn't with the flying saucers or the Mistels at the catapult... but with the ships wake. "Ships under way don't make wakes like that!" Doh!

We all fall foul to moments like that Frank   ;D

By the way I hadn't noticed the Mistels 'till you mentioned them  :banghead:

Nice one!  :thumbsup:

If you wanted to take the idea further, then a flying saucer carrier doesn't really need a long take-off/landing deck, so how about a hull with a carrier island on the centreline and a series of circular decks "floating" around it on open structure in an entertainingly asymeteric way?  Maybe with a couple of V1 launchers on the bow....:wub:

I thought the idea of a flying saucer carrier is brilliant; you have a place to park the saucers until you get near to the target, then you have plenty of room to launch regular fighters for CAP.

The question then is - if you have FLYING SAUCERS why would you need regular wingy things?
