Here I present my interpretation of K.22, a K Class submarine of the Royal Navy and was nicknamed the 'Kalamity' Class due to its persistent problems that plagued its life. It was designed as a 'fleet' submarine and could exceed 24 knots due to its sharp bow and oil-fired boilers but took an age to dive. K22, ex k13 that sank in Gareloch with the loss of nearly half her crew, was reclaimed and renumbered as K.22 but the Royal Navy are a superstitious bunch and K.13 never left K.22. Here is MicroMir's offering of a British K Class in 1/350, build here: When it was time to dive, the funnels were lowered into their recesses and at the same time, large hatches swung over to seal off the boilers, not always a success.

Evening all, I used to build lots of airliners but had lost a little interest over the last few years. However, I have always loved the MD-11 and when MicroMir released their's in a 1/144th scale injection-molding I decided to have a go at it. It's your typical short-run kit with a bit of flash here and there and no locating tabs etc, but it does have lovely surface detail and although it didn't have the quality of fit such as those from the latest Zvezda or Revell, it went together pretty well. I bought the Eastern Express KLM edition of the kit, but I really like the colourful and non-white CityBird scheme so bought some aftermarket decals from Daco which, as usual went on perfectly. Paints were from the Humbrol and Xtracolour enamel ranges, with a coat of Humbol Satin Cote to finish off. Tom
