Re: French A/C Carrier "Joffre"
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.
what is strange? it is a sort of cross between the USN pre war carriers, just with a short deck! and that open stern area is for seaplane handling!
