Short feature article by Louis Carabott
Intro by Geoff
It may be that you have seen some of Lou’s great work on social media and elsewhere but when I saw this impressive build of the French Battleship Le Richelieu I spoke to Lou and here we are featuring his excellent work and another opportunity for any of you interested in maritime scale modelling to get insights, tips and hints from someone who definitely ‘can-do’. Thanks Lou and I can’t wait to start running your other builds we have talked about and I can promise all of you who read this that you are in for a treat!
Setting the scene
I wanted to portray the ship in a diorama in a New York Navy Yard before leaving for Europe to join the home fleet at Scapa Flow after an extensive refit and trials in the East Coast.
The battleship was painted in a Soft Edge MS-3X Camouflage utilizing USN Colours.
