Out of the Box has gotten some commissions for some French Ironclads in 1/350 scale, A customer has requested models of the Arrogante and Embuscade Ironclad Floating Batteries, and the Taureau and Cerbère class Ironclad Rams. I have been not been able to find measurements, drawings or many references at all for any of these ship classes. I tried Wikipedia which wasn't helpful other than providing the ships displacement. After looking at the Bibliography on Wikipedia, I was thinking of purchasing the Conway's book for that period. Any help of directions would be much appreciated.

The latest number of NEPTUNIA (No. 289) has an article by Patrice Descenciére (he is the editor of NEPTUNIA) on TAUREAU, BOULEDOGUE, CERBÉRE, BÉLIER, and TIGRE.

The above coloured lithographs are from

MINISTÉRE DE LA MARINE ET DES COLONIES [Ed.] (1873ff.): Aide mémoire de l’artillerie de marine, Paris (Imprimerie Lemercier et Cie.).

I do have a set of the original plates, btw.
