I only know its light-gray with a black waterline and red underwater. Has anyone specs about this colors? How about the steeldecks?
Any info would be highly welcome

Thanks in advance :wave_1:

Sorry - my last post about the Heller DeGaulle and Duquesne kits was meant to go in this thread, and I screwed up and called it a new topic by mistake. Sorry about that!

And here I thought I had ground breaking news. I was checking old links in my favorites on 31 May and it didn't work. I was going to delete it but held off. Then tonight, it worked. I am very busy downloading what I need just in case.

They are indeed - the news was posted on the main forum a few days ago. Yay!

I believe that the free French warship plans are back up.

I have downloaded drawings of the Surcouf class escort just now.

She was built using the Profile Morskie book on her, an excellent resource.

The model is 1:72 scale, which makes her very long and like the original she is very fast.

Her builder has built a number of models, including a series of WW2 destroyers including HMAS Warramunga (RAN Tribal), USS NIcholas (Fletcher), Erich Steinbrinck (1934 class) and HIJMS Fuyutsuki (Akizuki) and is currently building the Italian destroyer Soldati.

Check out http://www.taskforce72.org for more images or http://s554.photobucket.com/albums/jj419/Unicorn1111/?start=all for more large-scale images

Ooooo that's one sleek look tin can! Looks like a French version of a Fletcher with some British influence/equipment. I LIKE!!! Anyone have anymore info on the ship/class? Can't really make out the ID card or plaque in the photos.

Thx,


Check out the Task Force 72 website, in particular the mission reports post-2008, Many of them have close up shots of Le Terrible post refit.

Has anyone had any experience with the WSW George Leygue?
How hard would it be to backdate it, pre-US refit? (I may not do that anyway, but the idea of her at Mers-el-Kebir is interesting to me.)

Thanks guys. :thumbs_up_1:

Since the French site is off line. Did anyone download the plans for any of the French Armored Cruisers? If so, can I acquire a copy from you?

If you are looking for the plans located on the French Archives website, they are not available at this time due to a malicious hacking attack some time last year. It is unknown whether they will be made available again - there used to be a message on their site that says it will be down for an indeterminable amount of time, but even that is gone now.

Thank you Timmy C. Just my luck.

Long time lurker that finally decided to register. I am trying to locate the French warship plans listed above. I don't speak French and I know that we are not supposed to post direct links. Could someone please provide some hints or spell out the link a bit clearer without breaking any rules.
Thank you.

Thanks! I guess that tears it, I'm going to have to get that book!

The drawing attached is a direct copy of Bjorn Landstrom's drawing in "The ship" (number 672, page 262 in the dutch version). I strongly suggest you buy the original.

I have the combrig Algerie on it's way. anyone built this kit? The review of it over at steelnavy is positively glowing, but I want to hear about construction and the like.

There are some problems with the platforms of foremast. Kombrig tried to make possible to built versions, but did not include all the necessary parts. There were changes, e.g. with AA guns on this platforms vs. a additional admiral bridge.
