    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

Hi

The moment has arrived, I already wanted to be able to show you these two models. Akula-class submarines and Oscar II Kursk class. Both are models of the house HobbyBoss scale 1/350, have been placed on a base simulating the water and which in turn are the basis for your urn. Both have been a benchmark for the Russian navy and deserve a place in my collection.
A greeting and I hope you like it

Extremely nice presentation! It is interesting to see the undersides of the hatches and how the superstructure opens to allow missiles the necessary clearance for launch. The contrast with US fleet ballistic missile submarines is interesting. The Typhoon has the missile tubes forward and the US submarines have the missile tubes aft of the sail. Also twin screws versus our single screws. They do have the seven bladed propeller as ours does.
