I have decided to build HMS Illustrious as my next model. Apart from the National Maritime Museum, which seem not to be helpful any more, does anyone know if Norman Ough did drawings of her? He did a model for the United Services Museum, so I would assume he produced a set of drawings. If so, where would they be available?
My model is well advanced, but the problem is not so much drawings as main detail of the port side of the island. As the ship underwent fairly extensive modifications during her career, my model is really a bit of a hybrid, in that she will be mostly accurate, but over a period of some six years. I am also rather stuck with the detail beneath the round down of the flight deck aft. Photographs off the net tend to be rather blurry. She currently has six Swordfish and will have six Fairey Fulmars.
