This model is a simple kit, easy to make. I made a great search to find the adequate color to paint this model...French Navy...and Heller, as we know, does not have a good information about this...
There are spaces to make conversions and add scratchbuilt details, and I made the hangar bellow the deck.
There was not enough information to make this kit, so I only got the Brazilian publication “ASAS" and the official French Navy site to check up for information. When we have been making ships every day, thinking with scratchbuild is indispensable for success.
So, I made some parts for the island and hangar, both with plastic and metal.
To paint, I used the duo paint
in the entire model. In deck, I used FS 36375, FS 36720 in
the hull, in the air wings is FS 26440 and FS 36622.
Unfortunatelly, we have less options
in 1/400 scale, but the most import is our obstinacy!
The price for the kits and other materials are not so expensive, which makes
it very fun to build up!
