CAPT Tal Manvel (Ret) discusses five of the design options for the U.S. Navy's new aircraft carrier the USS FORD



The design there at 2:00 looks like the Ford.  Just stick the island where the aft elevator on the starboard side is and there you go.

"Kawanishi A8K Toppu 1945 (Japan). Embarked Hunter.
The Kawanishi A8K was a development of the j6k Jinpu, a terrestrial interceptor that had not been retained. It was then modified to be used as an on-board fighter on the Japanese aircraft door to replace the famous zero. It had a folding canopy, was fitted with a NK9H Nakajima Homae 21 1990 CV radial engine. The aircraft was heavily armed and carried
Four 30 mm wing cannons. The prototype was finished at 95% when the war was over."

But no carrier at the day. :-[ Looks like fake?

Not unusual to offer alternative engines, Avro were owned by AS so it is only natural that they would try to sell a design with AS engines. As the Heyford and Hendon both had Kestrels I guess the Air Ministry had a preference for that engine
