Dear Boys and Girls, have any of you built the 1/700 Combrig kit of this class of cruiser yet? I would be very interested to know your thoughts on this kit; I have one, but I haven't started building it yet. Here are some images of the second sistership Waldeck-Rousseau......

Here my model of Waldeck-Rousseau, slightly modified to depict her in 1919 - 100 years ago her crew mutinied, when the ship was deployed to the Black Sea to support the Whites in the Russian Civil War:

Waldeck-Rousseau, 1/700, Combrig

Unfortunately, I have not found much about her 1919 fit, therefore there are many guesses involved. The above mentioned book will hopefully contain more information.
