  1. Another new addition to the slipway - the Mikro-Mir injection-moulded kit of the experimental submarine USS Albacore... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Albacore_(AGSS-569) Box art.... Instructions..... The hull is split horizontally - with excellent engraved detail..... A second sprue contains the conning tower and dive planes etc... The package is finished off with a small decal sheet, etched brass propellers and a clear 'windscreen'.... This is another very welcome kit from Mikro-Mir's growing range of 1/350 scale subs. Having already built the Blue Ridge resin kit of the Albacore :- http://www.flankers-site.co.uk/model_submarines_350_scale.html#USS_Albacore_AGSS-569 I may try and 'convert' the Mikro-Mir kit into an earlier configuration with vertical rudders and horizontal dive planes - as shown in the first drawing here....

  2. The latest addition to my collection of 1/350 scale submarines - the USS Parche. She was a Sturgeon Class sub lengthened by 100ft for 'Special Operations' work.... I cut and joined two Mikro-Mir Sturgeon hulls to get the length and scratch-built the raised decking and rear sonar housing.... Details of this 'hush-hush' sub are difficult to find - particularly information about the side thrusters - so there is a lot of guesswork involved. More photos of the actual build here. All my submarine collection here. Ken
