To be honest it's kind of an art for the art's sake, most of it will be bearly visible. I will put the crew all aroud the ship in time, but puting them inside would be a waste. There will be some lads in them opened hatches on the side though. But I'm glad I got you interested ;)

Only 2 years between these two entered service, but you can clearly see that they didn't play in the same league ;)

Some work done. I've added missing keels, there still two bilge ones left, but these are kit parts, so should't be a problem.

Fair enough! 👍I thought it might have been some fangled new way of looking for surface imperfections.

That is a way for finding imperfections Steve ;) As for detailing i have  very nice book about French battleships

plus some nice original plans of Danton. French archives shared them for free at some stage about 10 years ago and then changed their minds and started charging for them. I was lucky enough to get them for free ;) If you want them PM me with e-mail address.

Thanks Michael and Francis!

 

Got to love the Dreadnought Project wiki- tons of information, but impossible to find half of it, even when you know where to look!!

240 mm gun barbettes and sponsons are two separate parts.... why I don't really know, but I managed to make it seamless
