Scale and Notes

Except when noted all ships are 1/2400 scale.
I used a resolution of 200dpi. with 1 pixel equalling 1 foot.
All images are 6" by 6".

I'm putting 2 versions of each drawing in each image. A ready to go version that just needs to be printed, folded and glued for use, and a simple image so that people can base it however they want.

One word of caution to anyone who wants to modify the ships I've posted. All of these are jpeg images, so don't resave them in Paint. Paint will corrupt the images. Use a better program such as GIMP (my personel favorite), Imageshack, or photoshop.

USS Ranger

Here's the USS Ranger. I decided to put the aircraft in the hangers instead of on deck. I'm of the opinion that it might look better. I think it adds a little more detail to the hull.

Jon, shouldn't the port views have the bow pointing to the left of the page?

The port view by it's self should, but for the based ship it is correct.

I just tried to keep it easy, so id someone wants to base it they only have to do one flip instead of rotating it.

Hey would it be too much to ask if I asked you to make a Montana class? What if I begged?

Sorry, but I'm focusing my efforts on ships that actually served in
WW2. There are a lot of ships to cover. It's possible that I could do some of the proposed designs that were never completed, i.e. Montana, or Graf Zeppelin, in the future, but they'll have to wait until after other ships are completed.
