Revenge Class Launch Shoe
Launch bay for the Revenge Class Escort Carriers
Each launch bay of the Revenge Class carrier uses advanced rails and launch sleds to propel attack craft out of the bay, where the crafts engines engage for flight. These Launch tubes are linked to a may craft service bay via a double airlock system, and themselves remain pressurized until the opening of the main tube door. There is ample room within the bay for routine maintenance on a craft, swapping of ordinance, or emergency rescue operations. Among escort carrier flight crews and pilots these launch tubes have come to be known as Shoes, in reference to a shoe of cards as in a casino. This is the result of the fact that the first ship of the Revenge class, the Revenge, was the home of the Crazy Ace fighter Squadron.

Built using a variety of Davorama sets, custom lit (still working on the lighting). Built to scale with the Escort Carrier build seen in my Designworks, and to scale with several craft. I still need to make some custom textures for the signs. VGF-14 Wildcat by Chris Schell shown in bay.
