Here are a few photos of the Fleet Net 1/700 scale Liberte. I built it as the Democratie, which is actually the subject of the kit, as she was the only one of the four that had the protective bulges on each hull side under the bow anchors. If you wanted to build one of the other three you would need to sand them off. The kit is nicely molded and detailed, and it only needed some normal photo-etch items added, such as the railings and ladders. I scratch-built the forward anchor crane and masts from brass rod and used some surplus deck guns in place of the kit supplied parts. I rigged it with stretched sprue and used Floquil and Testors enamels. I hope Fleet Net comes out with another French pre-dread soon as it was an easy, fun build, and had detail very close to Combrig's standard.
