    Here's my newest carrier, with its full complement of Swordfish. The MacRae is a British merchant carrier built on a cargo ship hull (Liberty ship in my case).

    Yes, I know I need a better cell phone.

    My Bogue carrier, the HMS Queen, that I've had for many years.

    Nice maneuvers. That's a lot of carriers. Good to see I'm not the only one who uses fancy boat-carriers for launching. I saw at least three PVC cradles along the shore.

    The Queen is looking good!
    What are length and beam of her?
    Did you make or buy the airplanes?
    Thanks

    The HMS Queen is a Bogue class CVE built on a C3 hull. 496' LOA and 70' beam.

    The planes are Wildcats, 3D printed from the files I posted in the resource section.
