Another one of soviet aircraft carriers I've decided to make. It's based on my project 11437 Ulyanovsk class aircraft carrier with some major changes of hangar, superstructure and air wing.

Some said it's nothing more than rumours about digits "11438". However, there is so-called Ulyanovsk Improved scalemodel located at Nevskoe Design bureau's museum.

Original ship was designed somewhere at 1988-1991 and supposed to be built at 1991-1997.
Some said It's called Tashkent, after some soviet WWII destroyer, which in turn was called after city of Tashkent - nowaday capital of Uzbekistan.

Anyway, I've decided to make this ship with Russian Navy insign instead of Soviet Navy's one. This means renaming of this ship. So It's called now "Demokratiya", which is russian for "Democracy". There was a russian ship called Demokratiya back in 1917, so it seems good enough for me. It's traditional and at the same time it shows spirit of the first half of 1990s Russia.

Based on photos uploaded at forums.airbase.ru and information provided by V.Babich .

323 blocks long, 88 blocks wide (90 with airplanes) and 69 blocks high.

20 days or about 66.5 hours of gameplay were spent to build this boat. That's funny. I've spent exactly the same time - 66.5 hours - for building of original Ulyanovsk.

Not to spam the comments here but I have a request/ idea for you, maybe the Udaloy II or Sovremenny destroyers? :P ( I could help if you needed it xD)

Thanks for idea.

I've thought about Udaloy II for soviet "newer built" carrier strike group I'd like to make in minecraft.
It's only ship of this strike group which actually was built IRL, so she'll be the last one of them.

I mean, I've built Ulyanovsk Improved 11438, and now I'm creating Anchar 11990 class destroyer. Then I'll make project 11000 destroyer, and only then project 11551 aka Udaloy II.

How do you get the Item Frames to stay on the ship? as well as all of the other entities? Do you even use MCEdit for your schematics? This is a really good build by the way.

Hmm. Just copy and paste and nothing more.
If its important I'm still using MCEdit 0.1.8build692.
