The Flyhawk upgrade set is indeed superb. But it cost arround 100 euros thats more than 100 dollars. If you want a cheap alternative, check this one:

I heard there was a couple of issues with the Le arsenal set , the post in the gallery with the Richelieu at the dock (waterlined ) - amazing build if I may add - the builder mentions a thing or two . Would they have corrected the set do you think ?

cheers Jay

ps have received my kit and I am really happy with it

Hi Atma , I fear to say my Richelieu project is still in the looking at and thinking about stage ( like a lot of them :heh: ) , a USS Arizona 1916 backdate of the Banner 1/350 kit is using up alot of my model building hours. The fact that I build sci fi as well is not an advantage either ! My plan is to get a hold of the flyhawk set and go from there, otherwise I will build out of the box with less involved photo etch and save some intensity for my 1/350 Akagi or the like. :wave_1:

cheers Jay

Thankyou Atma , I appreciate your good sentiments :big_grin: I also have a 17 year old stepdaughter(single mum) and her 9 1/2 mth baby girl staying with us at the moment , so it's the end of civilisation as we knew it for now :lol_3:

cheers Jay

Are there any books with plenty of reference photos available on the Richelieu? It's most likely going to be my next battleship build.

Dumas, Robert (2001) (in fr). Le cuirassé Richelieu 1935–1968. Nantes: Marine Éditions. ISBN 978-2-909675-75-6.
and
John, Jordan; Robert, Dumas. French battleships 1922-1956. Seaforth Publishing. ISBN 978-1-84832-034-5.
Those two books will help you a lot. Plus there is a plenty of pictures in this thread.

Hi there , if one was to use a set of generic hand rails for this build , would this be suitable ?

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 1029973554

Were the radars on the Richelieu French design ?

just giving the thread a bump too :big_grin:

cheers Jay

last saturday we did have our meeting from the MMI. The weather was good only the wind was to strong for the small ships. The Jean-Bart was handling good without any problems.

When Richelieu leaves US after modernization in 1943 how many mk-51 directors were onboard?

Thanks in advance for any information.

Best: Jimmy

While Richelieu was beeing modernized in the USA in 1943, she was equipped with new radar gear and it was mantained till after ww2 and in 1951 consisted as described:

SG-1 ( US ) surface search 25nm range, SF ( US ) radar 15 mile range, 281B ( UK) aerial surveillance 60/80 mile range, DRBC10A ( French radar ) radar for 380mm guns ( 1 set ), 285P ( UK) radar for 152mm guns ( 2 sets ), SA2 ( US ) gunfire control radar located on top of the mast stack, 40 miles range.

The source of this info is the book "British, Soviet, French and Dutch Battleships of WW2", authors William Garzke and Robert Dulin.

Long time ago I saved the plans for Richelieu that was available in the site

http://www.servicehistorique.sga.defens ... php?id=227

..........so I consider the plans are not copyrighted.

As the site is OFF, I put the files here for you to download:

http://depositfiles.org/files/kptczadgg

In general it said these plans are "as built" but some sheet has alterations as in 1943 ( not all characteristics ), see the named as RICHELI1940PL3933
