Another HMS Nelson ... (Battleship/Carrier hybrid warship)
« on: December 08, 2015, 11:16:31 am »
One of my most beloved whif concepts: Battleship/Carrier hybrid :wub: :thumbsup:

Remember: http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,41541.0.html











This way flying deck would be 132 m long. Approximately like an escort carrier, but much broader. Could escort carriers perform combat operations like a "conventional" carrier?

Another very interesting project  :thumbsup:

I have a part started HMS Nelson project. Eventually she will get a conventional turret arrangement unaffected by the Washington Treaty

There were sources in the US that believed this was where the Nelson design would end up, what with the three main guns all forward.
But the space aft was insufficient for planes to take off unless they were nearly STOL.

I like it! :thumbsup:

In this project I had advanced but I had stopped it because I had to rethink several things, the most important of them is the flight deck that will no longer be built with the piece that I have right now reserved (the dark grey plate).

Just a thought.  How about a catamaran - one hull battleship, the other carrier?

Oh my stars and garters.  :o  :mellow:  :wub:

Port hull would be the carrier, island between the hulls.
