HMS Ark Royal IV question

I am looking to do an Interior diorama on the inside of Ark's hangar and whilst I have a couple of good pictures, I was wondering whether anyone out there has any pictures or drawings of the interior of the Hangar Decks?

TIA

Hi Graham,

although Ark Royal had two hangar decks, there wasn't much room to take photos when the aircraft were in there.

I have placed an image below (Fleet Air Arm museum photograph) which shows the two hangars from the area of the flight deck lift.

There is also an image (from Navy News eArchives) of the ship before the angled flight deck was installed, however the general hangar layouts would have been similar after conversion.

Thanks Guys. Between those piccies and the drawings that I already have, I think that I have enough for what I need. I understand that it is not the most photogenic area of the ship, nor the easiest place to photograph, so I am grateful for what you have provided. The exploded diagram really helps as I know the dimensions of the Lifts and can work out the rest from there.

I have most of the books about her, but not the Phoenix Squadron, is it worthwhile getting?

see if you can pick up a copy of the 1970's sailor documentry, there might be something in that, i try and look later and see if i can find the dvds

I have been planning to buy this for some time, this is a great excuse.

Thanks for the idea.

Can you UK based guys help me out. I see on Amazon there are two different versions of the show:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sailor-DVD/dp/B000...3786&sr=1-3

http://www.amazon.co.uk/BBC-Sailor-Complet...3786&sr=1-1

What are the differences? I see that the latter is 16 mins longer. Is that all? Do they both include the "8 years on segment" and the COI film of operations int he Med?

Also, is this any good?

Thanks
