  • Soviet Kilo-Class in 1:72 Scale

    A beautiful offering of one of the Soviet Union's most recognizeable submarine platforms, the Kilo-class!

     

    This kit is composed of 3D printed parts and a large section of PVC pipe. Assembly is exceptionally easy and this kit is recommended for beginner modelers as a way to get into the hobby with a substantially-sized model that won't break the bank. 

     

    We recommend the 3" Single-Shaft SubDriver to power this unit. 

     

    Material (3D Printing): PLA / PVC
    Length of model: 980 mm
    Width of hull: 125 mm
    Tube dimensions: Ø125 mm diameter X 2.8 mm wall X 375 mm length
    Number of parts: 16 pcs
    Weight of model: 1200 g

     

    NOTE: This model is created from 3D printed parts and final filling and sanding will be required for a smooth finish, if desired. 

     

    Also available for this model: Optional operational bow retract mechanism! Add to your order if desired!

     

    As this kit is sourced from Europe, please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery. Thank you for your patience!
