Yes, I am aware that navalizing a fighter isn't easy (so perhaps I should write, that development of that version should begin from the start), but isn't impossible, esp. considering that Tornado (IDS) being a low-level strike aircraft has probably already quite strong airframe which should make thi...

Shipbucket introduction and guidelines, point 4.3 The next stage involves coloring the ship. Coloring should follow the real life color schemes as much as possible, but rules still apply. Use two hues of the same color to color your ships: a darker hue for the hull and any outwardly-sloping hull sur...

I suppose that the issue with colour might be because of light - different angle, surroundings etc. Shading under the deck was supposed to be at the whole lenght, actually - my fault I didn't mark it properly. Also, the hull should be of slightly darker shade than the superstructure. You still didn'...

While comparing sizes of F-14 and Tornado, I was referring specifically to ADV (wingspan with wings folded/lenght/height of F-14 is 11,58 x 19,1 x 4,88m and of Tornado ADV is 8,60 x 18,68 x 5,95m). It also didn't came around that much later to make it impractical. I mean, F-4 and Buccaneer could (mo...

Why? Tornados and F-14s are of the similar size, similar payload, roughly similar weight (Tornado is lighter but with higher payload). Though indeed F-14s have better thrust-to-weight ratio, but I suppose that dogfighting wasn't too high on FAA fighters list of priorities before Sea Harrier (and tha...

Blackbuck - basically You're right, but (in my humble opinion) since Tomcats "are", and Sea Tornados "never-were", like the CVA-01 itself, they are more... how to say it... "fresh". ;)

It would be tempting to include the fabulous Tomcat, but could the RN have afforded it?
I would love to see rather navalized Tornado - both in fighter and in strike variant. ;)

Hi Zephyr. I wholeheartedly support Your idea to start on SB with smaller ships, as I have the same approach. :) Your drawing looks generally nice, but - despite being relative newbie here too, and not knowing much about that ship class - I have some thoughts about it. (And forgive me any language i...

This concept for an alternative universe looks very interesting. :)
