To Pobs re Carriers

Post by Moggy »

Pobs - could you let us have a report on the position regarding the 3D carriers. I saw from the last CAW email that you had finished the basic model for the Essex class and were working on the damage model.

Just a wee note (on my way to becoming an 'Armourer'!! lol :lol:

I have managed to pick up some good HiRes plan drawings for many of the carriers, if they'd be of any use, Brian?
Let me know and I can send 'em over.

Moggy,

yes we have the basic essex class and yes I am working on a listing 'damaged version' I don't think we really want the ship to sink do we ?? they usually took days to finally go down so I was going for a damaged deck and pronounced list for the damaged model... I dont know if it will sink anyway if it is in a ship slot..... ???

Dean.... all info gratefully accepted...

I have some reasonable skins for both japanese and US carriers from various sources but any new bmp's will also be gratefully accepted...


cheers,
