that site lists the Trumpeter version but no discussion on it.

True, but when compared with the older IPMS review of the Trumpeter kit, we have a real comparison between the two sites that does allow for us to make our educated judgements.

It is in French but a useful reference for Jean Bart nonetheless:

I am building the 1/700 trumpeter kit of the Richelieu. I don’t know if the turrets are underscale like the 1/350 kit.

Thanks.

Will6631, what is the box number as I think my model kit untouched is by Trumpeter & I have the 1940 plans of her on my computer, 15.8mb in DjVu format if you want a copy?

It’s the 1/700 Richelieu (1943) front Trumpeter. Kit 05750.
I want to build the Richelieu with the camo of April 1944. But the 15inch turrets seems underscale.

Thanks DavidP.

Hello DavidP

The battleship Richelieu is a warship that I know well. I have good documentation.
The turret supports of 380mm has a diameter of 14150mm.
Either at 1/7000, a diameter of 20.21mm.
I have plans of the turrets.
For the 1943 camouflage, I have photos and diagrams of camouflages.
I advise you to look at the 1/350 scale model. it was based on my documentation.
If necessary, you can contact me by PM or email via the forum.
Take care of yourself.

Seb

Hello Seb,

Did you have informations of the camo of avril 1944 to january 1945?

Hello Guillaume
Yes, the turrets are undersized.
2mm at 1/700, I find that it is done a lot.

A long time ago, I posted a detailed analysis of the 1/350 scale model. I think it is also valid at 1/700.
Unfortunately, I no longer have the text.

I have color profile of the first "Eastern Fleet" camouflage as well as some photos. The configuration of the battleship is the same as in 1943.

Seb

Micromaster makes properly sized and shaped turrets in 1/700.

Some colour footage here from Toulon in 1962 including views of Jean Bart. She is seen being moved about by tugs, presumably shifting berths or something like that? She would have been withdrawn from the active fleet and in reserve by 1962:
