Topic review - 1/350 Kirov (Trumpeter Modified)

On an unrelated but related note, I will be building a 1/350 modern version of a 9 x 16" gun battleship beginning late this year and most of next year. I will be using the Kirov hull and lengthening and widening it to meet what would be the new dimensions of the ship, between 900 and 920'.

Hey, guys!

carr no longer participates on the site, so he's a little difficult to get in touch with. If you want to reach out to him, you can check out his blog and get him there. Search Navy Matters, and you can find him. Concerning pictures of Kirov and friends, I am sure he still has his archive :heh:

Hi

I plan to build the trumpeter 350 scale Piotr Velikiy.
Not so much builds are shown on the net.

So i'm a bit frustrated to see that the maybe only extensive Kirov build stands without pictures.

Carr, Is there any chance to Upload the pictures with wetransfer or another upload platform?

That would be much appreciated,

Or has another member saved the pics? And would be kind enough to upload them with wetransfer?


thanks in advance


Regards
Romain

Ah, the picture hosting issue raises its ugly head again--all the photo links are broken. :frown_2:

Dear Mr. Carr, is there any chance we may view your photos again, even off-site? They don't even have to be captioned. This whole thread was very inspiring even though, at the time I read it the first time around, I had not envisioned ever obtaining the kit. But fortune granted me a successful chance at this very kit, ridiculously under-priced.

Ah, alas.

That's is one impressive build! I know what ya mean about the clear superstructure and I'm having issues with the clear helicopters. I'm not a fan of the helicopters or anything clear right now.

Curious which pe sets you use? I have only the gmm but would be open to the wem set.

Euhm.... where are the lifeboats??? And the helo? You're not finished yet, you can't leave the looney house like this!

Anyhow, the result is stunning. The stern shot is awesome and most likely the most accurate there is! The lower hull details are a big question if you look at the different props, it's also likely that other parts of the lower hull may be different on each of these ships. Nothing you could have done better on this model. You've gone a long way to create an accurate ship and it won't get much better than this by anyone!

Congrats on finalising the ship although I do hope you will put the lifeboats in place. The helo can be left off, but perhaps a version with folded blades ready to go to the elevator would be nice? Just a suggestion though.

Nice job there but you may want to swap them with each other for they rotate outward. Keith

Hello what brand and colors of paint are you using?

Thanks for stopping by! Unfortunately, you're not going to like my answer. I don't worry much about colors and trying to match to "correct" colors. My view (many, many modellers would disagree!) is that the effects of scale distance, weathering, and other factors render the attempt to match paint a pointless exercise. So, I just eyeball match an approximate color, lighten it about 20%, and call it good enough. With the accuracy bar set that low, I just use whatever colors and brands I happen to have on hand and mix my own shades as needed. I don't even record my own mixes. If I have to make another batch and it happens to be a bit different in shade, that's fine. Real ships are not uniform unless they're fresh from drydock.

The best I can offer is that for this build, FS36320 has been the base of my grays and I tend to use Model Master Acryl paint more often than not.

Sorry! I know that's not the answer you were hoping for.

Regards,
Bob


Hi Bob,
out of 25 years experience in modelling -most of it with 1/35 military, since 1.5 years shifted to ships- I totally agree with your comment and point of view! :thumbs_up_1:
No offence against anyone using correct RAL/RLM, FS or whatever standard colour ... but if not building a clean model without any weathering, rust streaks etc., my opinion was and is always that the so called scale effect (as smaller the model, as more lighten is the original colour) and the weathering effect too are an important point in painting.
So out of this I work same way as you with mixing my colours and rarely using the named standard colour only. Every 1 colour shade is also at least made of 3 - 4 different colours to match these effects + lightning and darkening effect by dry brushing and using oil colours.

So good to read and see that someone has same opinions as I have :wave_1:
