Tombola's aricraft carrier springer
« on: July 17, 2008, 09:33:12 pm »

Hi
I am Bobinnit and MGrob's friend and have also got the springer bug.
This is my first attempt at building a boat with a little help ( quite a lot  ;D) from MGrob.
here is a quick pic of my Aircraft carrier springer, i hope to have it finished by the weekend and will post more pics then.
let me know what you think.


sorry it's a bit big but every time i try and resize it goes all blury

Here is 2 more just need to put a AA gun on the building and radar on top of the tower.
Then all it needs is the running gear putting inside.

This the AA gun that i'm gunna put on it.

Yes ! You could work in a very useful bulwark/Harrier ramp to stop the aircraft getting wet :)

I was thinking it needed the jump ramp also...

Hadn't considered that it could double as a bulwark.

Trouble is that on the Invincible Class ships the ski-jump ramp is only on the portside. Do a full width one and send the idea to the RN ;D

That is a good looking springer, I presume the aircraft on the deck are glued down. If they are not put some PBY5a Catalinas on the deck instead, then when the water washes over the deck it will look like you have launched them {-) {-) {-) {-)

Nice Job

Hi tiger......iv'e got one about a foot long with quite fine teeth and a round one and a triangular one that gets clogged filing aluminium.......i did have a square one but i broke it :D :D {-).....
                             This somewhat silly reply will probably tell you what i know about computor files and such stuff......... O0

     Seriously i dont really know it just seems that when i try to attatch a piccie from adobe it won't actually open the ones i want >>:-(..and even if i try to import a piccie that is showing it doesn't bring it across

                             regards..bob.

Tombola, is the deck on your carrier detachable ?  Seems like a big gap, might be an idea to make a shoebox like arrangement out of alloy angle (B&Q) to overlap the gap.   :-\
