OKB Grigorov 1/700
Fort Drum

by Peter Fulgoney

I had the pleasure of meeting Domi of Retrokit yesterday, and picked up their first 700 scale offering, FORT DRUM.

This kit represents a purpose made concrete “fort”, built on an island off Manila Bay to protect the harbour entrance. The kit represents the fort in 1941, and includes the main armament of 2 sets of 14in guns together with a cage mast and platform.

The casting is errorless, and clean and the photoetch certainly is an essential component to produce the perfect model of this unusual structure.

The instructions are clear and simple, and the photographic work included is also a good help.

They are priced at £49.99/55 Euros, and available off the Retrokit site.

Needless to say, I bought one and will be building it soon!
