I guess they will never do. Years ago (maybe 10 or more), they announced they would release 8 battleships at 1/350. They released the Sebastopol, Marat and Dreadnought. And stopped. Most certainly because the two Russian did not sell well. I was trying to guess what would be the other ones : October Rev, Paris Commune, Alexander III or Catherine II were quite certain. But nothing came.
So, tired to wait, I recently decided to build the Paris Commune from a Marat and the Catherine the Great from a Sebastopol. I suspect this is the best thing to do.



Oh I'd really love to see the Russian Black Sea Fleet Dreadnoughts in 1/350 too. I suppose part of the problem is they are so little known in the west? It is very difficult to even find any books in English about them. And you never see TV documentaries about them either. Logical enough given the chaos of the first World War, the Russian Civil War and the cloak of secrecy from the Soviet era. The battleships are almost unknown in the west. I only heard of them myself through reading about the exploits of the Goeben / Yavuz.

I found this by Google translating to Russian and image searching. I really like the olive green colour scheme and the aerial recognition discs on the turret roofs:

I concur about the yellow cranes but overall I like the colour scheme. Cold blue colours to suit the cold arctic. I actually like the wraparound Russian flag and the Cyrillic lettering on the hull. Makes her very distinctively Russian looking. It is not a nice as the black and orange scheme from Soviet Times but does look distinctly more modern.

Some walkaround views from her commissioning:

And some onboard views during the latter stages of construction:

Very cool info. Yes, ships are different of course.

And also, Im sorry I have to say something.

The vintage Arktika looked classy..

Americans have a nice looking high viz color scheme also (Canada also):

And 2020 Arktika was supposed to look like this:

But instead we have the ugliest paint job possible, with that pointlessly huge and badly designed RosAtomFlot logo, and yellow cranes that jar with cyan paint job and that enormous wrap around Russian flag... I feel like Ryan Gosling in the SNL Papyrus sketch looking at this design.

It's just not pretty. Id like a 1/700 version of this so I can paint it as it was originally proposed, not that horrendous thoughtless child interpretation of a nice paint job. And I would recommend everyone to do their Arktika that way also in as planned livery. Not good to encourage bad design. :heh: :sorry:

AFAIK some years ago I saw a 3D rendering of a 1:700 WL Arktika by Combrig on their FB page and I'm still wondering what happened to this project. This was about at the same time as the first rendering of their Lenin, which was issued, but not the Arktika.


As far as I remember, the Arktika shown by Combrig was the 1975 completed ship of the Project 10520 (the first ship, which reached the North Pole), whereas the one by Zvezda is the ship completed in 2020 of the Project 22220 (which was also at the North Pole, but the ice was so weak in October 2020 that it was not a real trial for her).

For me, both are very interesting ships.

Very interesting news about the Arktika. Might just have to get one. Looks great with the Russian flag painted around the superstructure.

I'd love if Zvezda released kits of Oktyabrskaya Revolyutsiya or Sevastopol in 1/350 as well as Marat. Such unique looking battleships in their latter years.

Hope that they will make also an eight times smaller version (1/700).


I agree!

Neato, I'll bet getting one for sure. Interesting that the facebook post also mentions that it won't be the only naval kit in 2021 either.

Hello!

I'm surprised that 1:200 DKM Scharnhorst is coming very soon!

Extremely unlikely. Dorsetshire was a different sub class to Cornwall with a completely different hull.

Since Trumpeter released a 1/350 heavy cruiser HMS Cornwall, does this mean they will also release her sister 1/350 HMS Dorsetshire also in the future? Sorry if I missed a past announcement about it.



Ahem,anyone have any news about my old question above?

Haven't found any news I may have missed in forum searches today...

No, it'd be the new-mold one released in 2015: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10343419[/quote]

Hum ! Looks in fact much better than the one I have which is the one from last century... :thumbs_up_1:

I was just about to ask did Flyhawk made molds for this Pit-Road kit too.
Too bad.
I guess Flyhawk spoiled us. :wink_3.gif
