Re: French A/C Carrier "Joffre"
To me you are right 98%. May be the poop deck would be a bit rounder (not so sharp) and the hull backside prominent outside (going towards exterior of the poop deck). But all is conform like that very well to plans one have of the project.
If you have not them all ready, try pix at Google ;

Here are some photos of my latest model--the never completed French aircraft carrier "Joffre". The model is based on plans by John Jordan, plus other material from what I gather are official French sources. This is one of the possible designs for Joffre. I have two others which are equally strange. I had to make a number of assumptions about boat arrangements and other things, so I am open to criticism (constructive or not). More photos can be found on my website in the France WW2 Other Types gallery.
