  • Russian Kilo in 1:96 scale

    An amazing depiction of one of Russia's best known ASW (Anti-Submarine Warfare) submarines. 


    The original kit was mastered by Dave Manley of Small World models and the new and improved fittings are produced by David Merriman. The hull has excellent rigidity, reducing warping, and the cast resin fittings include a fully assembled rear section that feature pre-installed rudder and dive planes, saving time and complexity, particularly for the new sub-builder. 


    Here is a video created by David Merriman, who creates the fittings for me, highlighting the features of this magnificent little boat
