Master Model 1/350 Russian/USSR AK-100 100mm/70 (3.9")

By Sean Hert

The Russian/Soviet AK-100 100mm gun is found on the modern Neustrashimy, Udaloy I and Krivak II classes, as well on the Admiral Ushakov (-ex Kirov) battlecruiser. This single DP gun is stil in current use; the recently launched Yaroslav Mudry, a Neustrashimy class has one forward. This gun was supplanted by the AK-130 on larger combatants. (The AK-130 weighs almost x3 a AK-100)

Master Model from Poland has released this set of 2 machined 100mm barrels. The barrels come well packaged with card stiffener in the main bag and a page of printed instructions


These barrels are much more detailed, and very slightly shorter than, the plastic barrels included in both the Trumpter Udaloy and Admiral Ushakov (-ex Kirov) kits. They are highly recommended.

This pack of barrels from Master Model is nubmered #SM-350-021 with an estimated MSRP $12.95, and should soon be available from Georgetown Hobbies, and other retailers.

Master Products are distributed in the US by Georgetown Hobbies and are available at the following stores.
