 :} :} yes it does, the only other bit that protrudes and only when needed are the booms for lowering the ships boats, they sit in the openings and when required two booms to each boat extend till the boat is clear of the hull side, then lower away handsomely.. Very stealth in its time.

The Mk3 version of the light landing system, MK 1 was the version posted earlier using just coloured lenses, Mk 2 used led but found them to bulky so now using 12v grain of wheat bulbs, very happy with result.
The scenario for all lights on is, flying stations have just been piped, carrier turning into wind and the light landing system, turned on, it is now self checking the system, hence all the lights are on.

Not so much slowing down, as not enough time, work, then lessons to prepare, for teaching, also finishing one book and just had commission to produce one on HMS Bristol, to be ready by February, so just a tad busy.
Working on the air wing at moment as can do that indoors, also working on the side lift area in very short bursts.


So its not dormant {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)
