So the Governor General of Sector 6 and I are embarking on a wild and zany campaign, which requires us to build giant space aircraft carriers.  I will be sharing my progress here.  Check out the blogs for moawr info tho if you would like.

I got the inspiration from this ship, which appeared in an old episode of Thundarr the Barbarian



Getting everything aligned for the build



After figuring out where everything would go I began getting the deck shape cut down.






Stay tuned for moawr

That's completely illogical and crazy. And thus by definition also awesome  lol

Will the ship be the playing board, or willit be a feature on an even larger table?

Great project and a good start; It'll be interesting to see where you will be taking this...  :)

Thanks Daeothar.  It will be a bit of both.  The concept will be to take part in a big game, with several ships and aircraft.  Though as I start to build it I I've allowed for battles that can be fought on it as well.

Today's progress covers sinking the command tower into the hangar deck and starting to glue the raft supports to the main ship.

I love it. But man, I think you can make a raft for yourself in case of floodings! I guess that's dual-use materials...
