Ok! Time to start a new ship now that the Gloire has sucessfully sailed . This build is going to be the FN Bearn, the only French carrier in WW2. The plans for this build are located at Visit this site. The 144th plans are used here though the 96th scale plans are at the same location. I plan on putting a lot of details in this thread to hopefully help out the new captains that want to build a wood ship. Please feel free to ask questions about the building style or why I did something in a certain way. I've seen three different ways of building a wood ship, so my method isn't new or all inclusive. In fact, any suggestions on the build would be appreciated. This Bearn will be build as a multi-format ship. That means with changes in weaponry and pumps, it will be legal for Big Gun, Treaty, and MWC. My first goal is to set it up as a convoy ship for the MWC Nats in July. Here we go!
