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.

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

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

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.

Has anyone information about the colors of the interwar french Navy?
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!
