Good work.
I know Ashley did do Ausonia not so long ago but the two sides and top view are a bonus.

I can see what Ace means about the wood in the overhangs, most probably they would not be wood but covered with some kind of anti-slip covering.

Possibly a German version of non-skid paint?

The textures are taken from the HMS Queen here for the flightdeck and the WIP of the H44 for the normal deck (the pictures no longer seem to be uploaded :( ) I chose to use them because other top views I had seen in some AUs recently used them in similar fashion. Anyways, if I go for a anti-slip paint, should a simple grey be sufficent?

As for the airplanes: The design allowed for ca. 10 land airplanes and 13 seaplanes (or 19 seaplanes if they had foldable wings). I chose the Fokker D.VII and the Friedrichshafen FF49C.

Looks really nice I'll have to say.

I'm kinda tempted to redraw my own SRN Lazarev with a top view now...possibly a wartime version of her.

I've updated the top view with grey deck coverings.

Next one in the series in Graf Zeppelin, so here's a little WIP:

I had to redraw it, because the old version was scaled wrong...

Nice work Alpha, as the original artist I will be watching this one closely. I agree the old version is out of proportion, I was going to redraw her at some point but I haven't the time and I'm sure you'll do as good a job as all the other German ships you've drawn.
