Just to add a comment about the carrier,
1. there seems to be a shading issue with the propeller as it currently looks to have been copied from elsewhere as noted by the different colours.
2. Also the planes seem to be outdated, I’d visit Cascadia’s collection of AU German aircraft in the plane bucket discussion thread that provides a multitude of up to date aircraft (just remember to cite him)
3. At the bow region I noticed 2 issues, 1 being that their is a multitude of overlapping lines that create the “Heavy corner effect” (see rule 2.1 in the style guide), I also note that several lines are not connecting with one another such as the lines at the bottom corner of the bow at the end of the shading region and near the deck where there is a point missing.
4. (Take with a heavy grain of salt, as it’s my opinion) check out some other ships in the forum, I’d recommend the Spanish cruiser design by dalamace in “Never Built” and try out using those porthole colours instead of the older blues on your current carrier, for my ships I use them on it helps them look a bit more realistic.
On another note, it’s a splendid design and a nice concept, all that needs to be done now is some good ole touch up on the design and some shading adjustments and you will be good
Ultraking, thanks a lot for your very positive comments. I will take care of the aspects you mention, except one, but first an answer to your point regarding the screw (insn't propeller used only in airplanes?).
The screw, yes, I took it from another ship I draw (with more or less the power installed like this one) and that one I took from the part list here of Shipbucket. The shading (at least for me) is very difficult since I don't know the exact twist of the blades...
Now the plane issue: I don't know the part list you mention, I'll try to find out, but... as I said earlier the "navalized" versions of the two types I used are a bit different from the real ones used by Germany: The Ju-87 has a stronger engine fitted somewhere around 1.700hp mainly due to the much better avgas Germany gets in this scenario I am building up than it had in real WWII. This allows more boost from the part of the compressor and - cannot be seen here...- the airplanes of Germany (in this case, but not only) use inlet air intercoolers which increase also the power as we all know (or, to put it correctly before someone moans, intercoolers allow to extract more power out of the respective engines). And a revised Ju-87 (more streamlined in certain parts of the fuselage as well as the fairings of the main gear) with 1.700hp would have been much more effective than it was already... Since we are at it, "my Ju-87" take a 500kg bomb in the centre rack plus two 200kg ones on external wing attachment points or 2 x 200 liter fuel tanks to extend the range (important on naval use...).
Second, when "DKM Prinz Alfons" was commissioned, there were available updated versions of nearly all the planes Germany had but few new ones. A step I took from the future was the inclusion of the Focke-Wulf Fw-190 here, since in reality it didn't exist yet in 1940 at least in production. Here, I anticipated its service entry a year or so.
As for the portholes, what you say is new to me... I thought this kind of blue was mandatory...
Keep in touch mate, it's guys like you I'm searching for to do some healthy debates here. Thank you very much!
