Cold War French airfield buildings

Mountain goat

Recommended Posts



For a long-term diorama project I am working on I am researching French airfield buildings. 


Now if it were an RAF subject I would be spoiled with dimensions and other data that are easily available on the internet. But French subjects less so - at least to me, my command of French is very poor so it's more difficult to search French content - let alone posting on French forums.


I wonder if anyone reading this can point me in the right direction.

What I am looking for is:

-the dimensions of the different types of hangars used by the Armée de l'Air, and specifically this type of hangar, seen here in Reims (photo url: http://bdd.deltareflex.com/cns_affiche.php?image=1123)



- and the dimensions of the typical French hardened aircraft shelter, variously referred to as an Hangar Durci, Hangarette Durci, or Abri Bétonnée (I'm guesstimating 13m base width?):



A big thank you in advance!
