French ASW-frigate of the Cold war period. Completely rebuilt LDD-version of LEGO-model, 1:350 scale
About this creation
As long as the administration of the site will not report its official position regarding its improper functioning of and prospects for upgrades, I replaced all the pictures of "plugs"...



"Tourville" is a class of large high-sea (blue water) frigates of the French Navy specialised in anti-submarine warfare. They have anti-air and anti-surface capabilities.


The three ships of the class, D612 "De Grasse", D611 "Duguay-Trouin" and D610 "Tourville", are named major figures from French naval history. De Grasse and Tourville were French admirals and Duguay-Trouin coming to fame as a privateer.


Optimized for anti-submarine warfare, and carrying towed as well as hull-mounted sonar arrays, the "Tourvilles" were typically placed in the destroyer category of warship and carry destroyer pennant numbers. Similar in many regards to the unmodified "Spruance" class destroyers, they carried a similar combination of sensors, naval guns, anti-ship and anti-submarine weapons, aircraft and surface-to-air missiles. Additionally, they were well-regarded for their seakeeping, serving much of their careers in the Atlantic rather than with France's Mediterranean fleet.


The ships are an enlarged version of the frigate "Aconit". They have two shaft steam turbine machinery and a double hangar for two Lynx WG13 helicopters. They were the first ships fitted with the marine version of the "Crotale" surface-to-air missile system. A "Malafon" anti-submarine missile system was fitted when the ships were built but this was removed during refits in the late 1980s.


The frigates were the first French ships originally designed for the use of anti-ship missiles "Exocet". The ships carried six launchers of these missiles, grouped into three, side by side in the middle part of the ship. I had to work really hard to make these LEGO elements )))


Frigates turned out successful, but too expensive. Therefore, a series of restricted three ships, and then began to build smaller frigates "Georges Leygues" class.



Compare with 1:700 scale build.



My model is built in the scale of 1: 350, for the construction took 534 (407 - above waterline) bricks.
