Topic review - Calling all Kirov & Slava (Киров и Слава) class fans
Author Message
  Post subject:  Re: Calling all Kirov & Slava (Киров и Слава) class fans  Reply with quote
So, prior to my last deployment, I came across a great deal on a.1/350 SLAVA with PE and other aftermarket stuff, and always being a fan of these brutes, I bought it without question. So, then, on said deployment, I got to see Marshal Ustinov (CG-055) up close. My kit happens to be Varyag (CG-011). So, I was hoping there might be someone out there who has 055 markings who would be willing to swap them for 011 markings.

Thanks,

Dave

Good afternoon. If someone is interested, the microdesign company in March released this photo-etched .... Peter the Great at TARK :thumbs_up_1:

Not sure this is definitive but...
I have been unable to find any photos of Varyag with the rotating curved screen radar, which was installed on the first two Slava class cruisers. All the pictures I have seen of the Varyag--the third Slava--show her with the two plate system.

You can ignore the above question as I have looked up the answer.

Good morning gents. I have new a question today...

Was Varyag ever equipped with the curved/ribbed "Air Search radar" screens atop her forward superstructure? Or did she always have the "Top Plate radar" which looks like two pizza boxes?

TIA,
Chuck

Aha. Yes, I see the other one now. The one on the forward superstructure looks like the one I have a closeup of. Thanks for the clarification! :smallsmile:

Hi Chuck, if you look at Tim's first link you will also see a second bell, located on the starboard aft signal deck (rear of the foremast)

The bell located on one deck, near the gangway, is the ceremonial ship's bell and is only shipped when the vessel is in harbour, at anchor or at a buoy etc.

It can be seen at least here on the starboard side amidships: https://i.imgur.com/jDWaj.jpg

If this has been asked before in the duration of this thread I apologize:
Where was the ship's bell located on the Varyag? I have seen a photo of it on line but can't tell where it was mounted.
TIA,
Chuck

Does any one know where a person can obtain the Kirov plan book, and how accurate is it?

For the waterliners, the Danish navy took a great shot of Peter the Great as she passed through the Danish Straits on her way to St. Petersburg earlier this week - the camera orientation and calm waters make her wake pattern very clear to discern and replicate:

A little late, but either cream or grey.

In case anyone was curious, the recently-released 1/700 Peter the Great from Revell is the Dragon molds: https://www.revell.de/produkte/modellba ... 05151.html

The great big circle cutout in the bottom of the upper hull is the biggest giveaway.

Question two, what's the best acrylic paint match to the deck 'red' colour NOT Tamiya or Gunze

Thanks for any help.


For your question 2, my trumpeter 1/700 Moskva I built, I used floquil railroad colors oxide red (F110186) for the upper decking and same brand weathered black (F110017) for the main decking. I would upload a photo of the ship, but it won't let me from my phone. Hopefully that helps and is to your preference

Thanks Bob that was going to be my best guess, I have a photo of a Kirov hanger so that will help.
