    I can easily make a model like that, yes, however my free time for working on hobby projects like that is limited right now due to some other projects. Have you considered taking the build video and taking screenshots of the different stages and post those? I know the build video is not tatally accurate now mind :-/

    On the topic on weapon systems, CAMMS for sure looks like a good posibility for the QEC since it is so relativly easy to fit, not sure where you would add the silos to the ship though.

    Anything would be great

    I think you would want to install CAMM batteries in small sponsons more or less in the same positions occupied by the two Aster 15 missile silos on Charles de Gaulle: http://quotulatiousness.ca/blog/wp-c...Gaulle_CVN.gif

    Thinking outside the box (or ramp) how about building CAMM tubes into the ramp so they face out from the sides. The side opp the islands would have a free line of flight, not sure about the other may interfere with parked aircraft. It would also make use of what seems to be idle space.

    Wouldn't that men reconfiguring Sea Ceptor somewhat? I thought it was designed for soft vertical launch!

    I think that looks great SKB... So what if it's not hyper realistic down to every single rivet and whatnot... I can't even make a simple box in Google Sketchup...

    @Pymes

    I agree in principle fitting the carriers with missiles etc is really not the best approach, although as an alternative to the SeaRAM CAMM is a good / better option.

    @9166

    Is the ramp not utilised space, I understood it was. Either way, the mixing of upward firing missiles and returning to deck / departing deck planes always scares me. But in principle the CAMM missiles are flexible enough to be fitted to almost any carrier group vessel.

    Change of plan - no need for the ramp.
