1:100 Typhoon sub
« on: May 14, 2008, 04:26:46 PM »

Hello folks
A couple of pics of one I have just finished.
A 1:100 scale Russian Typhoon sub, NOT the Engel kit this is made from 5 part fibreglass mouldings fibreglassed up into one hull, and then detailed by hand including 3,498 anechoic tiles, scratch built dive module , opening front vanes,  Hydraulic periscopes and opening front missile silos, with a working sonar and dive claxon, up to 8 channels so far.

Hope someone, somewhere finds it interesting.

Nice to see someone else who has built at 1/100th scale, even though my battleship is taking me forever to build.

Nice looking Sub does it sail well??

If it floats I'll  build it, if it sinks its a sub either way its in the water so I'm content.

Very nice build.

Did you scribe in the anechoic tile detail before or after the hull was cast?
