OKB Grigorov 1/350, Ref. 350011
The R-class series of diesel-electric submarines were the forerunners of the modern attack submarine, specifically designed for underwater performance and the attack and sinking of enemy submarines. Twelve were built towards the end of WWI for the Royal Navy but only one saw action very late in the conflict. All but one were sold for scrap in 1923.
OKB Grigorov’s latest 1/350 offering is 14cm long, made up of three resin parts for the actual ship (a fourth resin part is provided as a display stand) and twelve photo-etched parts. A small instruction sheet is provided. The engraving is, as usual with OKB Grigorov’s CAD’d and 3D-printed kits, superb. Building time should be minimal and this should not be taking much space inside one’s display cabinet. What else would one need? Get yours now!
