Cruiser often attracted to the air defense aircraft carrier "Clemenceau".
My model is built in the scale of 1:700, for the construction took 244 bricks (189 - above waterline).
Cruiser R97 "Jeanne d'Arc" is designed to find and destroy submarines using helicopters anti-submarine squadron in conjunction with other anti-submarine ships. Cruiser-helicopter can also be used as a training or landing. Despite the fact that the cruiser did not have outstanding performance, he was a decent, reliable vehicle and almost 50 years in the service of the French Navy.
Cruiser armed with 6 ASM "Exocet" launchers. For self-defense ship was armed with a battery of excellent automated 100-mm guns, "Mle-53".
In wartime, the main ship weapons are 8 anti-submarine helicopters "Lynx" or landing "Super Puma" and "Super Frelon". Dimensions of the flight deck of the cruiser provides simultaneous rise of two heavy helicopters.

fantastic work, especially with regard to the superstructures of the "Colbert"!
Thank You! With "Colbert" have long to bother. He always turned out too high, there was no necessary grace. Had to sacrifice the accuracy of the aft, but in General the look of the ship was similar to the original.
