Hi everybody,
I started to make the Hobby Boss 1:350 - PLAN Kilo class submarine

Some technical info:

The Kilo class is the NATO reporting name for a military diesel-electric submarine that is made in Russia. The original version of the vessels were designated Project 877 Paltus in Russia. There is also a more advanced version, designated as Improved Kilo in the west, and Project 636 Varshavyanka in Russia.

The boats are mainly intended for anti-shipping and anti-submarine operations in relatively shallow waters.
Original Project 877 boats are equipped with Rubikon MGK-400 sonar system, which includes a mine detection and avoidance sonar MG-519 Arfa.
Newer Project 636 boats are equipped with improved MGK-400EM, with MG-519 Afra also upgraded to MG-519EM. The improved sonar systems have reduced the number of operators needed by sharing the same console via automation. Project 636, sometimes called "The Black Hole" by the US Navy for its uncanny ability to "disappear", is thought to be one of the quietest diesel-electric submarine classes in the world.

Type warship SSK - Attack Submarine
Displacement 3.000 tons
Crew 52 complement
Length 70,00 meters
Beam 9,90 meters
Draught 6,20 meters
Speed 20,0 knots
Range 13.900 Km
Propulsion 2 X Diesel resulting in 6.800HP

Weapons
4 Missile 3M-54E Klub-N (AN; range:220 km; speed:3000 km/h; caliber:533 mm;)
18 Torpedo YU-6/9 (AN-ASW; range:45 km; speed:65 km/h; caliber:533 mm;)

I would make a Kilo-class submarine #372 Yuǎnzhēng 72 Hao of PLA Navy
