This is the DNS Gemini CV-15, Eighth of the 18 Constellation class carriers, in her 1955 attack carrier layout. Also, in my opinion, this is my sexiest & most beautiful ship to date, it just ANNOUNCES Elegance and Power!

Top view


Top view with all elevators lowered


Front deck, catapults and single 5" guns


The twin cheese slopes is the twin 3" mount


Front elevator lowered


Front elevator raised


Water door, this will rise (like it is currently) in high seas to keep the water out.


Catapults


Jet Blast Deflectors, only problem is they leave a big hole in the flight deck when raised, haven't figured out how to solve that without reducing hangar height, if you have any suggestions please post in comments.


....


Mid elevator lowered


Mid elevator raised


A twin 3" mount


Island, it's a bit on the short side, maybe i should have added another 1x1 brick for height


.....


Here you can see air intake on the starboard side of the island and smokestack


....


Aft elevator lowered (it's missing a 1x1 brick, didn't notice that until looking at pictures)


Aft elevator raised

This type of carrier reminds me to the real Essex class. You also added Jet blast shields. And as usual, you stayed at your own rainbow color style. Well done! :)
