Re: Colossus class conversions: catapult trials ship HMS Perseus
Thanks for posting Lars, and thanks for the kind words Jon and Phil.
Triumph with the temporary angled flight deck is on my radar. I would definitely do it, but for a lack of pictures.
There are a couple of photos in Neil McCarts book on the Colossus class ships, but these are taken after the trails with the deck markings mostly worn away.
Any better pictures would be most welcome.
Another conversion of a IHP Colossus class kit by Nick Shipp:
HMS Perseus , which was used as trial ship for the development of the steam catapult. Both, FAA and USN planes were used to test the catapult.
