Some great stuff there. I really like the look of that stealthy ship, but anything that carries a Harrier has my vote !

I'm still interested, but less in a version that has a hanger, and more in a solid hull one if it'd be cheaper (or, say, one where the hull is hollow on the underside, but solid and detailed up top).

That still looks bloody brilliant, Thor!   :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I had an odd thought...what if you did it as a true craftsman kit and just did everything under the flight deck, and provided a template to make the deck itself.  So resin for the hull, and a piece of paper with the template for the deck?  If you want to include the superstructure, that could again be in resin, but cutting out the flight deck from the equation should save a lot of material and weight.

Just an idea.

The hull would still be a big chunk of resin. The best option may be to create some drawings and instructions for creating the hull from stock styrene.
The superstructure can be done in resin.
