|You don't see too many Russian subs that served in World War Two in the model ship world. So this is a refreshing change of pace. Kombrig (or Combrig if you prefer) is a new resin manufacture that has been releasing quite a variety of kits in 1/700 scale. Made in Russia, Combrig has concentrated on introducing kits that others overlook.|
|The hull is two pieces giving you a water line option without resorting to the saw. The two halves line up pretty good and if you do choose to go the full hull route, joining them will be fairly simple. the casting on this kit is pretty good and the parts are all well cast. The conning tower walls have a scale appearing thickness and surface detail is pretty good.||
|The propellers, rudder, and bow and tail planes are all well cast in resin. The deck guns and other details are pretty well done too.|
|The instructions are basic (and in Russian), but this kit
is so simple, you will not have a hard time figuring out where everything
goes by referencing the exploded views.
There is no photo etch included in this kit.
If you have never attempted a resin kit, I would recommend this one as a starter. This kit is listed for $9.00 in the latest Pacific Front Update making it a real bargain and hard to pass up. Thanks to Pacific Front Hobbies for the review sample.
