Euhhhh,,,,, do you want to take over m'n? http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb219/darthpanda_NL/French.png Hello Darthpanda! As you may have noticed, I did d'Entrecasteaux's upper hull (Tread French protected cruisers). I have not drawn any lower hulls for any of my ships, and some people seem to ...

Another batch of great work! Only think I can advise about trying to make shading on tumbledome-shaped hull (that would still be more-or-less SB-standard and therefore uploadable) is to try to use two (only two) similar shades applied in strictly regular manner (on more angled part of hull/on less ...

Hello Bezobrazov To answer your question, the Colbert has 8 274mm guns in single turrets and turbines for 25 knots. As I have explained to some people, underwater hulls were simply not on my agenda when I made the drawings; I figured why spend time on them when I could draw another ship above the wa...

Hello Thiel Lacking convincing sources, the main guns are based upon the russian 100mm from Gollevainen's old russian DDs (the French influenced the Russians a lot, so I thought these would be closest), the secondaries upon the 47mm flaks of Novice's Normandie (with a thicker barrel so they look lik...

The smaller fictional designs I did not calculate with SpringSharp (which is probably not very reliable to begin with as it thinks the Colbert is a very good sea boat, which she can hardly be with that short forecastle and a row of heavy turrets on the extreme beam of a very narrow hull). The Bizert...

And here the final fictional french battlecruiser of WWI, based upon both of Durand-Viel's proposals, but changed far enough from either to be a personal design rather than a never-built one. As such a ship was unlikely to be completed much before 1920, I fitted it with a tripod mast. http://i1279.p...

As long as I am at it, here the immediate successor model, a battlecruiser version of the Courbet without the side turrets: http://i1279.photobucket.com/albums/y531/Garlicdesign/ships/BCMarengo.png Marengo, France Battlecruiser laid down 1910 Displacement: 20.848 t light; 22.066 t standard; 23.994 t...

Hello again! To inflict my french collection in its entirety upon you all, here are some fictional designs. I thought them up many years ago for a self-made boardgame loosely based upon the 1970s vintage Wooden ships and Iron men, with a similar game mechanic to recreate World War I battles. It went...

Hello heuhen, ok I admit my explanation for not drawing underwater hulls might have been incomplete. My personal french collection also includes might-have-beens for which only sketchy references exist, and personal, entirely fictional designs, for which naturally there are no references at all, and...

And last but not least: A few destroyers (although they admittedly were rather quickly and roughly done). http://i1279.photobucket.com/albums/y531/Garlicdesign/ships-2/DDSpahi.png http://i1279.photobucket.com/albums/y531/Garlicdesign/ships-2/DDCasque.png http://i1279.photobucket.com/albums/y531/Garl...
