No worries Shipmate. It might be a language hurdle? Am I right, that English is not you native tongue? :)

Be careful,
the Seakings were embarked only after the banshees were retired.
"The F2H-3 were retired in 1962. In 1964 new CHSS-2 Sea King helicopters were added to Bonaventure's complement."




I would ass a (small) remark for the 1968 drawing:

after the 1967 mid-life refit, the two forward Twin 76mm were removed (as also the sponsons)

après la revision de 1967 les canons de 76mm situés à l'avant ont été débarqués et les encorbellements correspondant ont étés supprimés.

Paul, I have just returned to my 1/144 scale Bonaventure. It is a slow project started 2008, but then I am still young(66) with sometime left to work on it. Have made any progress on the drawings you were working on?

I Lou, for the moment I am not working on it and I am also analyzing some pictures of a model from the Canadian Air & Space museum. If you have questions, just send me a PM ;)

Regards, Paul

That's a lovely looking update.

The only advice to improve it further I would give is to reduce the number of black lines on the outline of the various sponsoons, really these should be dark grey like the forecastle overhang.
