I have found my drawing for Admiral Baudin/Formidable. As well I was able to recover Admiral Duperre.
Both of these drawings are single sheet outboard profile with hull lines.
They were copied from the french government site that provided thousands of high quality tif files.
Although they were not a common listing I found them in archive a few years back.
If there is a desire to add them to the existing french drawing page at this site, I would be happy to send files. Just tell me where.

The Formidable was not in the list, it was archive but able to view if name was entered in search. Victoria modelers society had links a couple years ago for both steel and wooden ships at the French government site. Amiral Duperre was in the wooden ship list list, I'm guessing because it was a composite hull. (oddly enough that list also contained drawings for USS Iowa BB 4) As well there were several drawings associated to Duperre regarding detail. Those I will not be able to recover.

Will send today what I have.

Thanks -- I will add these soon.

I wonder if anyone has direct contact with the French authorities who can determine are the files destroyed or if they are merely slow to restore a crashed site?
