AN-2 aknásznaszád 1/72 Balaton Modell
Borisz posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - MaritimeHello! Today I show you an especially rare topic. This is the AN-2 "aknásznaszád" from a Hungarian short run manufacturer, Balaton Modell. Aknásznaszád is abuot minesweeper pinnace. The Hungarian Poeple's Army needed a more effective boat, then the earlier produced AN-1 in the role of cleanin' the river Danube from mines. A total of 53 made in the Danubian Ship Factory in Vác town. As the river was full with inductional mines, the hulls were made of aluminium alloy. The maximum load (sinking??) of the boat is 60 cm, so bellow twoo feets, so it can be used in realy shallow waters and also flooded areas. Main armament consisted of a DSK machine gun. 1980, aug. 20th. In 2004, 32 boats were withdrowned and sold as scrapped metal. Some remaining units are totally owerhauled, DSK shifted with NSVT mg. and still in service at the Bomb squad and Warship Regiment and on duty to neutralize mines, shells and other hazardus objects remaining form the seconf world war in the rivers Duna and Tisza, and the lake Balaton. Also nowdays they get an importent role in the migration crisis of patroling the water borders of the Schengen zone in Hungary. One in civil use A militant in summer of 2006 -lake Balaton And an other at yesteryear, near to the Parliment in Budapest. The kit itself: Howewer the manufacturer is famus for its precise and stunningly realistic moulds, this kit not successed as well as it was expected. However the moulds are overall ok, the lower hull is shorter then the deck with 3-5 mm. So I give my compliment to the BM, and they sent me a longer hull and dense request for indulgence. The spare part was still not perfect, but much longer, so I could solve the problem with just a litle plus plate at the rear. The mast and the propellers's axis replaced with injection needles, but anyway the details are nice Also we got some interrior, but I've lost the photos... Since I am into aircraft models I decided to not spend serious effort in the kit just give the feeling of the river flottila with the rough-and-ready paintjob. Some soldier for fun and to show the dimensions: As a conclusion I say it is not a difficult kit, however having some problems all of it can be fixed and gives us a realy unic unit in everyone's collection, so I highly recommend it.
