Title: Trumpeter 1:144 Scale HMS Astute
Post by: unbuiltnautilus on April 24, 2017, 06:24:35 pm
Like the title says, just flicked through the 2017/18 Trumpeter Catalogue. They have plans for a 1:144 Scale HMS Astute. Should be popular for RC conversion. Sizes out to about 65cm x 7cm. Good for the small sub community. Their previous USS Seawolf has always been a popular conversion, so Astute, with a bit more internal volume, should be a good candidate for underwater Plastic Magic.
As usual with Trumpeter, ETA some when, not yet, watch this space etc!!
