This build is simply stunning, Nicolas. Your attention to detail is amazing, and your patience and dedication have resulted in a stunning model.

Um, have you thought about doing Jean Bart as she looked before the Torch landings? Incomplete Turret2, no 152mm turrets, yellow superstructure, etc.
Sorry, I had to ask :-)

HI gentlemen's

thank you blacman :thumbs_up_1: but a magician maybe not, tenacious certainly :smallsmile:

well the shipyard reopens after some episodes of subcontracting and other small hassle :smallsmile: :smallsmile:

I will install the access ladders ,I am going to start by the quay side. As the hull of the Richelieu seen from above looks like a willow leaf and the wharf was small and suitable for mixed freighters and small freighter, the part where it was possible to put ladders of cut was reduced .possibility to put one in the middle on the castle bridge

Image

as you can see the ladder comes in the middle of the hull, the company implementing this part of the port before the war had access walkways. the authorities used them to Richelieu access at quay . the acces walkways are drawin by Jean Mahieux

Image

the sames with a weathering

Image

on the open sea side, the ladders are classic

Image

that of the bow, unmounted and with its davit

Image

the hoist and the davit of the stern

Image

and the hoist for that of the bow

Image

to give you an idea of the size

Image

the result provisionally in place

Image

Image

and finally .... a crucial step just passing ..the Richelieu definitely joins of the port of Dakar water......

Image

Image

Image

the turrets are temporarily installed , just for the photos ,but the acces walkways are definitely glued.
This step unlocks many other....
see you soon
cheers
Nicolas

Glad to see new photos. It looks magnificent. The attention to detail is just superb.

HI gentlemen

thank's for your kind words
the work becomes difficult because full of fragile things are next to my big fingers during the final pose of parts.for starters, on the castle , the rangefinders stack which is glued definitively,giving so are definitive appearance

Image

the same, for the one on the chimney

Image

in both cases, to reinforce the assembly, an axis passes through the stacks, for the purpose of laying the masts.
some views from different angles

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

the small bubbles on the water in the foreground, are the locations of the buoys of the anti-torpedo net that surrounds the Richelieu
see you soon for the next progresss (the secondary armament)
cheers
Nicolas

She is slowly but surely coming together Nicolas! The rangefinder stack looks wonderful! :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:


Mmm, Béarn is very interesting too!
Will she be as built, or with later modifacations Jean?

Cheers,

Marijn

Hi Marijn,
This is the kit "Arsenal" for the base but in fact, there will not be much left on arrival. I remade most of the parts with PE parts, with the interior layout of the sheds. For the version it is about Béarn 1932/1933. I plan to do a 1939 version too.
I will not flood Nicholas' post any longer, see you soon in this forum.
Jean

I feel like your approach is a synthesis of artistic beauty and precision engineering. As always, thank you for the in-progress work!

Very interesting!
It will be nice to see both versions together. But that will be for the very far future I guess! :big_grin:
