Some background music: [link]

HMS Attacker was an American-built escort aircraft carrier reconstructed from C-3 transport ship. She served with the Royal Navy during the WWII. Participated in Salerno landing in 1943, South France and Aegean campaigns in 1944, and operation Zipper (Malaya, 1945). After that ceded to USA in 1946 and reconstructed back into merchant ship. In 1977 she was damaged and reconstructed into floating hotel, which burnt in 1979. Scrapped in 1980.

Your stuff is crazy good. Do you ever work with traditional mediums? I think it'd look neato with oils or something

Thank you, lady. Unfortunately, I've never worked with something more complicated than watercolor (it was in junior school) and pencils.

Ahh a Bogue class CVE :)

USN sure was obsessed with carriers building a damn many of these small Convoy Escort Carriers!

Look at the carriers listing, nearly 100 of them.

Japan built a few like them, but only some 9 or 10.

Amazing what we could do when we focused on it.

Yeah, they built them as fast and as many as baker bakes pies. Darn, I like these coffin-like carriers.

Sailors who manned them sometimes said that CVE stood for 'combustible, vulnerable, expendable'. They were also the victors in the war against the U-boats, and in the battle off Samar.
