Welcome aboard Hood4472!
As a rule when using other artist's work you should credit him, writing the original artist's name before yours. So' i think the firing squad for now is on hold.
Also please note that when uploading images to Photobucket you should use either .gif format or .png. Also note that there is an option in Photobucket to limit file-size to 1mb when uploading. Use it.
The following thread may be of helpuploading images to Photobucket
Once again welcome aboard

Apart from what Novice has already noted, I like your 'take' on the Courageous. If such a rebuild had ever been attempted it would have probably looked like this. So in that sense a good drawing. The only problem would be that such a rebuild would never have been done. Quite apart from begging the question of what these hopeless ships would have been doing until the late thirties, there is also the question of why bother, and as it was there wasn't the time or resources to rebuild proper ships anyway. The R.N. utilised the hulls as carriers, the only use for them and in that a bonus at a time when such hulls were needed.
We now have two 'Hoods', but I take it yours is the 4472nd version? Welcome aboard and looking forward to seeing your stuff in the correct area :)

Yes agree with every thing you said about then ,because as carriers they were not used correctly and were pointless loss ,sad

Yes, I totally agree about the sad loss of these ships due to lack of proper application. Compared to the USA and Japan the British were slow to realise the value of carrier aviation; most of the prewar aircrew were lost early on in the conflict.

Hi again ,which is the best section to put" What if " never built ?
Portsmouth Bill - November 24, 2009 09:23 AM (GMT)
I would not class the Courageous modernised as a 'never built' as it wouldn't have been considered as such. That leaves 'own designs' as probably the best place, but one of the admin team will advise on that.
