Soviet Carrier Destroyer based on Sovremenny
« on: April 02, 2020, 05:25:39 AM »
This project is based on a purchase in ebay of an "only for spares" item. It was a 1/350 Trumpeter Sovremenny that lacked the entire hull, but the waterline plate was present. Currently I cannot say about completeness of other parts, we will know during building process :thumbsup:. Some blocks of the superstructure were assembled very poorly and worse painted. I was disassembling everything I could without causing damage to the plastic. For the hull, I chose a very old and inaccurate model of the USS Iowa from Revell at 1/535. I built the new hull, without a step, with the waterline plate and lateral, and front supplements. In this new config I assumed that hull was already cut by the flotation line.

The concept is a Destroyer armed with a pair of huge (approx 20 m long) cruise missiles (with chemical or nuclear explosive) able to destroy an US Aircraft Carrier and part of its escort vessels.

Here you can see my project (waterline cut) compared with RW Sovremenny (full hull).

Just to give you an idea. Superstructure is not properly glued, and turrets are not installed yet.

Yes.. big is always best.

The Soveremenny ship is quite large in 1/350, so plenty of scope for niceness

When I first read the title of this build I thought it might be for an 'pocket' aircraft carrier based on a Soveremenny in a similar fashion to the various Spruance class concepts (see below):

The forecastle with two AK-130 turrets looks quite imposing.  :smiley:

That thing between both big tubes is a command post to control, backwards firing, huge missiles. It is implemented as a specially designed and protected and armored capsule intended to house specialized people authorized to fire these strategic weapons.

Wow. That came out great!  8)

Photobucket remains a pain in the butt, though.  ;D :-X

Not sure why your photobucket stored images won't show properly.
