Did Zveda gave a new release date or is it going to compete with the Dragon 1/350 Atlanta in when not to be released?

It's from the Zvezda Sevastopol mold, though unsure whether it incorporates any new parts to reflect differences between the ships.

I had a feeling about that. Perhaps the Revell offering will be cheaper than Zvezda's.

Good day!

The difference of the Russian Baltics dreadnoughts ( Sevastopol type) soon after commissioning.

Due that all sister ships have built on the different shipyards, they had some difference in constructions.
“Sevastopol” and “Petropavlovsk” were built by Baltic shipyard . “Gangut” and “Poltava” – on Admiralty shipyard. The both shipyards are located in Sankt-Petersburg.

GANGUT and POLTAVA :
There were the inclined ladders from the main deck up to the searchlight platform with the hatches .
In additional there were spar ladders, but without hatches on the searchlight platform ( see photo 1) .

I see North Star has produced an extensive PE set for the Zvezda Sevastopol. Has anyone used it and have an opinion of it they can share?

Thanks!

New question . . . I see that Zvesda had released kits of each of the ships of this class. Are they all the same molds or do they differ in any way?

Thanks!

Bill

AFAIK are the same in case of Revell Gangut ,Zvezda Poltava and Zvezda Sevastopol ,the only different is the Zvezda Marat which BTW is very nice and is a modernized version of the Petropavlovsk

Some pictures of Marat in different years from tsushima.su


(Photos of Marat on Page 1 of the thread)

Interesting aerial recognition symbol in stretched fabric visible in the second last photo there. Any ideas what colours it was or what campaign it was from?

How much change is needed on the 1/350 Marat kit to turn it into the October Revolution after the 1941 Kronstadt refit. I won't pretend to be an expert on this class of ship, but I really like the way they look and will be ordering the Marat kit.
