Steam Submarine - HMS K26 1/350 scale


Recommended Posts

My model of HMS K26 - the last of the class of steam powered submarines launched during WWI.

I converted it from the Mikro-Mir 1/350 scale kit of HMS K4 - by lengthening the hull by 11.4mm and scratch-building a new raised casing and bridge.......

The bow was also altered to make it taller - using Milliput to get the basic shape.

The WIP is here

More photos of the finished model......

Comparison between the kit (K4) at top and my conversion (K26) below - note that K26 is longer by 11.4mm.

Now - anyone got any plans of HMS X.1 ??

I'm in the final stages of producing a book on the K class and would like (With reference to you) to make use of the models. Would you be happy with me using them or would you rather I didn't?
