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.

Hi Timmy,

very detailed photos on the link sent, one of which is clearly visible the RHIB (although is covered) as well as the colours of the starboard ShipBoat.

Indeed very useful links!


Thanks.

Hi Timmy,

Thanks a lot for the URL sent. Fantastic photos!
I need yo paint the helipad with the green colour!

Also the photo with the anchor clarifies my doubt. The anchor is rusty and creates a contrast with the (black) background.
All photos I have seen, the anchor is also black, and for this reason is difficult to see the position of the anchor.

Regarding my question nº1 and nº2, I managed to find a photo (by Vladimir Yakubov) of the Guided Missile Cruiser Varyag in San Francisco on June 2010.
It shows the colour of the ship boat, but also shows a "hidden" RHIB close the FWD funnels, located on the right side of the boom crane.
Not sure if there is (or not) a 2nd RHIB on the left side of the boom crane.....

I would not be surprised if a warship of this size could have 2x RHIB's onboard....

Can you spot the RHIB?
Image

The ship boat is painted white, except the hull bellow the water line and the deck that seems to be green.

Hi,

Two more questions about the Russian Navy Cruiser Varyag Project 1164:

3 - What's the colour of the helipad: Green or red brick?

4 - What's the position/angle of the anchors when they are not is use?



Thanks

Ayala Botto

Hi,

A couple of questions regarding the Ship Boats / RHIB aboard the Russian Slava Cruisers Project 1164, since I'm "refitting" my 1/700 Trumpeter (ref 05721) Russian Navy Cruiser Varyag (pennant number 011).


1 - What are the colours of the two Ship Boats (not sure about the correct designation)?

2 - Shouldn't I replace one of the Ship Boats with a RHIB?



Review of this model available here:
http://www.modelwarships.com/reviews/sh ... eview.html


The refit I have in mind will include the addition of the following PhotoEtched items:

• Fwd Mast (Top): MR-700/710M (Top Steer) 3D air search radar
• Fwd Mast (Front): Palm Front Door-C - Radar MR-1164 Argon Front Door-C
• Fwd Mast (Front): Palm Frond (1x) - Radar MR-212 Nyada - surface search radar
• Fwd Mast Yard Arms (Sides) : Palm Frond (2x) - Radar MR-212 Nyada - surface search radar
• Aft Mast (Top): MR-800 Voskhod (Top Pair) 3D early warning radar
• Rails,
• Whip Antennas


Not sure if I should create a specific topic/thread for this refit....


Thanks.
Regards,
Ayala Botto
