Good day,
I know Heller has made this kit for number of years. As with all Heller kits they have the opportunity to be improved. I have a couple of questions about this ship.
1. Does any one make a decal set for this ship any more ?
2. La Arsenal has the aftermarket supplies but what PE set could be used to replace the Catwalks.
3. Island looks like it needs to be updated does anyone have a good photo of domes etc.
Thanks
Major-B

Good day,
finally got a reply for the very busy folks at L'ARSENEL 2.0 they quote "The Heller kit represents the carrier as designed in the mid.80's but not as operational. The model has several issues such as the angled flight deck that is too short, fantail has not the correct shape, and some catwalks are either misplaced or wrong in shape. Plus the fact that the air group is so crude that you can use it as a toy ! There is no dedicated upgrade set for the Charles De Gaulle, we have a long time project for it, but at the moment our plate is full with other models to release "
So here are my question:
1. Do you remove the stern and scratch build a new Stern? If so are their any good photos.
2. How much needs to be added to the angle deck?
3. Other than railings and ladders/stairs/doors for PE could be used to fix the catwalks?
Thanks
