Whiskey Long Bin project 665
Apologies for not staying on true track but is there any chance of L'Arsenal releasing in 1/350 this model Soviet sub?
They were few and dogs but really capture that clumsy agricultural cold war Russian look with the curved sail and 'added' oblique missile tubes. you can see from the 2D silhouette they look good but look even better from quarter bow view with tubes open. I have several Soviet subs in my collection and I would love to add one of these to the mix.
What say you L'Arsenal?
Nice build of the Golf Tom Dougherty. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whiskey-class_submarine#/media/File:Whiskey_Long_Bin_class_SSG.svg
L'Arsenal 2.0 of France is about to issue a complete range of the Golf type:
Project 629 Golf I,
Project 629A Golf II,
Project 601 Golf III,
Project 629R Golf SSQ,
Project 605 Golf IV,
Project 619 Golf V and
Project 6631 Chinese sub.
1:350 scale, resin and PE. Production delayed due to the Covid crisis but production casting has finally resumed. Just waiting for PE from the etcher.
Full complement of (unarmed) missiles included...
ETA: maybe early Fall.
