Might as well start this one. I find these ships to have an compact design, quite appealing. Has anyone seen the HP kit of her yet? I'm considering getting this one with the spoils of Christmas. Any books that you guys would recommend, or plans available online? The French Naval archives have nothing, as far as I can see.

I have the HP France in the stash. Looks like a pretty decent kit. I think they are pretty cool looking ships.

The only time I've seen one of these kits built up was in a photo feature from the 2008 IPMS UK Nationals. Click here and you'll find it at the top of the page, just under the photo of the USS Wasp. You can also try the photo feature that Jim Baumann submitted of the same show here, to see if there are any further photos.

Thanks for those links. I think I'll plunge ahead. Seems like an uncomplicated build (cue ominous thunder in the distance :big_grin: ).

Hello,

I just received the HP kit of the Courbet in 1/700.
Nice kit with brass barrels for the main guns.
I have to analyse the kit compare to the drawings.

All the very best,
Eric
