New from l'ARSENAL 2.0:
Project 1851 Soviet/ Russian nuclear submarine "Almaz" (NATO: X-RAY)

Available at both 1:350 and 1:700 scale
Resin and PE

Image

Project 1851 «ALMAZ» (АЛМАЗ ), NATO: X-RAY is a «first rank deep dive nuclear station».
Studied during the early 1980s by Malakhit design bureau, three boats were built in Leningrad. They can operate high depth divers and ship a diving chamber.
About 40m long with a displacement of 550t (surface)/ 1,000t (submerged) they have a thick titanium pressure hull and a 10MW nuclear propulsion plant. The boat standard diving depth is believed to be 1,000m.
Three boats entered service between 1986 and 1995: AS-23, AS-21, AS-35.
They belong to the 29th submarine brigade of the North Fleet based in Olenya Guba, near Poliarny in the Kola inlet.
The Almaz can be operated as «parasite» sub under a specially modified large boat. To this purpose, former Delta III SLBM sub K-129 Orenburg (former Project 667BDR «Kalmar») was modified in 1994.

The Delta III is available from Polar Bear (1:350) and OKB Grigorov (1:700). Sub adapter has to be scratched:

I ordered one, looking forward to it arriving. If I can find more detailed info on the mothership, more pictures I think I might give it a try in Solidworks because that would be a cool project.

My order for this just arrived. Excellent work like always. If there is more info out there on the mother submarine I think I would buy another kit so I could try to make a version docked with it.

Cant wait to see the family of Golf class subs in 1/350. Very much looking forward to it.

Quick question concerning the HMS Sheffield 1/700 kit. At one time L'Arsenal had talked about doing a round bridge conversion for this kit so the last three ships could be built from the kit. Are there still any plans to do this? Thanks in advance for any information.
