Ok... but when the part with WW will came? For now the renewed Deutsche Republik (or maybe slow steps to reinstate monarchy?) made peace with neighbours and notorious invader from Austria is out of picture with his merry band of wackos so... what next?

Someone said here a while ago, "everything has already been drawn"... I may agree with that but I'll add: Interesting is not only designing a ship (in this case), but putting it in context with the era it was built, how and why and for which purpose. So, I will be as short as possible: My idea is us...

https://i.imgur.com/0aVZ6Sa.png This is my idea of a then modern aircraft carrier for Germany's navy in the early 40's. This is a "Graf Zeppelin" class because of the overall dimensions, although several changes have been made, the builders having learned from the building experience gained from th...

This is a large and complicated topic that unfortunately can't be easily summarized in a forum post :) No it can't. I've seen a bit on the net and the multiplicity of tasks wich need antennas for getting the basic jobs done (transmitting and receiving signals or voice) and the characteristics of th...

Edit 2: If I were to make a try, I'd submit a drawing and below the ship include a text describing the sensors and we...
