Formidable!

You have to say the title in a French accent for it to work properly!

Today, we’ve completed the redesign process for the first of the major powers of the Aeronef world. With the release of nine new escort vessels, all of the French models have been replaced with new, 3D-printed versions (in case anyone was thinking that we’d already finished the British fleet first, there are still a couple of odd models that need to be done).

Today’s batch of new models includes two destroyers, three frigates, three patrol craft and a monitor. The smaller vessels are one piece castings with separate masts where appropriate, while the three largest vessels have separate gun turrets and (in the case of the Suffren monitor) side guns. The patrol craft are now supplied as a sprue of three vessels instead of singly.

VAN-405 – Le Brouchet Class Torpedo Frigate – £2.00
VAN-407 – Hussard Class Motor Torpedo Nef (x3) – £1.50
VAN-408 – Descartes Class Destroyer – £1.00
VAN-409 – Vaillante Class Destroyer – £1.00
VAN-411 – Perigeaux Class Patrol Nef (x3) – £1.50
VAN-412 – Hoche class Patrol Nef (x3) – £2.00
VAN-413 – Suffren class Monitor – £2.50
VAN-414 – Regnault class Destroyer – £2.00
VAN-415 – Siroco class Fast Torpedo Boat – £1.00

We’re hoping to get the German escorts replaced as well in the very near future – there’s just one mould to go.
