Hi Nige thank you for the complement much appreciated . My greatest reward is that modellers and those interested enjoy viewing Kiev as I have enjoyed building Kiev. Thanks again

Dave,

I saw Kiev during a visit back to the UK in January. She is looking Great, and as someone else here said, she is in surroundings that complement her. You should be very proud!

Thanks for your kind comments , although the project is a few years old now some of the methods used for the build can of course be applied on other subjects and are not confined just to the Kiev .
Thanks for taking Interest.

Thanks and my apologies for any inconvenience.

Hello Dave,

it would be nice, when you still have a copy of the polish magazine.
Otherwise i have to merge my two bad body plans to a fair one, so I can start with the build.

Your fantastic documentation will be a great help for me. Therefor thank you very much!!!

Greetings
Steffen

Hi Dave,

congratulation to this fantastic model of the Kiev. :thumbs_up_1:

I'm from Germany and I've planned to build the Kiev too (in 1:100 scale).
But I didn't found suitable Plans of this ship so far. Especially the body plans of the frames are non-satisfying.

So my question: Where did you get your model plans?

Greetings
Steffen

Hello Steffen Thank you for your kind words .The plans I used were an incomplete set which where made available, some years ago by a Russian Model maker friend . Unfortunately the quality left a bit to be desired and if it wasn't for the photos I could not have built the model. Some years ago a Polish Model magazine published a small single page drawing which included the GA and body plan, I'll see if I still have a copy of that magazine. . Thanks for your interest I wish you well with your Kiev project.

Hi Dave

Been away from the site for a while and coming back your build was where i headed straight for!

Absolutely sensational work and an inspiration to us all! I know that you have moved me for one to try new things and aim to improve!

Hopefully the pics helped earlier in some minor way!

Thanks for the build thread! AWESOME!

Cheers

Steve

Steve I am delighted that you have returned to MW. I owe you big time for all of the help that you have provided . I doubt very much that the Kiev model would have progressed as far as it did without your photographic contribution .
At least I can now thank you for all you have done.

Perhaps as a fitting conclusion to the build and the eventual destination of the Kiev model I was very touched indeed to receive from former crew members of the Kiev this banner mounted and framed. What can I say, only a thank you to all who helped with this project and particularly those former crew members of the Aviation Cruiser KNEB.

hi there dave, just like to congratulate you on a mamoth yet stunning build, read threw the entire thread and my jaw was on the floor for most of it, i currently just bought a set of plans for the kiev class but unfortinaly they are pretty much junk, would you be intrested in selling a copie of the kiev plans? would be greatly apreciated, congrats again on the build dave top top work

robert hodgson

Hello Robert Thanks you so much for your kind comments. I must be perfectly honest the drawings I acquired where incomplete and leave a lot to be desired. Many of the modifications, build sketches etc associated with the build where undertaken separately and as yet I have not combined any of this work into a new set of meaningful drawings. The basic interpretation, scale and positioning was through the incomplete drawing. After that only the photographs where of any practical help .I can only offer my regret that I am unable to help with drawings at this time but if you have any questions regarding Kiev and the build please feel free to ask.

Its great to see her finished Dave :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: , it sure was a long road for you, i'm pretty sure you enjoyed it though..


Jose :wave_1:

Jose you pose an interesting question regarding enjoyment of a build? My potted thoughts about a completed build are quite simple. Starting a model when fired up with enthusiasm is not that difficult, finishing a model can be relatively easy going as most of the work has been done. It's all the work in the middle, that combination of , frustration ,lack of this or that in information and material , distractions even equipment to do a job and at times a willingness to throw in the towel . But I wouldn't have it any other way. If a project does not challenge the builder then the final result it not quite as sweet. Yes I really did enjoy the build and I’m looking forward to another but slightly different challenge. Thanks for asking
