  1. I started OKB Grigorov's Su-102 in 72 scale. First built the DShK from the kit. It was over 20 resin and photoetched parts. I suppose this is the finest and most accurate DShK on the planet in 72 scale
  2. This is my Soviet submarine project 701 NATO name Hotel III from OKB Grigorov in 1/700 scale. Very nice kit, the only bad thing was that the build finished very quickly, as they were only few parts but I enjoyed all the 2 minutes of it
  3. Hi everyone, I started another OKB Grigorov kit, this time it it is British Nuffield Assault Tank A.T.2 . I liked the previous build and I acquired the other Nufuields from OKB Grigorov The kit is in 72 scale and I like the level of detail. You can check my previous build here: and the result here: Here are some pics where I am now with the build: @flashlight Nick, I'm waiting for your bui
  4. German Medium Tank Pz.IV Ausf.H original 9./B.W. configuration 1:72 OKB Grigorov The Panzer IV was one of the most successful military vehicle designs to emerge from Nazi Germany and was the only German tank to remain in production throughout World War II. Early models were intended to serve as infantry support tanks and were armed with a 7.5cm L/24 low-velocity, short-barrelled gun. To make the Panzer IV more effective against enemy tanks, later models such as the Ausf. H, were fitted with the more powerful 7.5cm KwK 40 L/48 gun. The Panzer IV served
  5. Resin Tracks for Churchill and M4 Sherman Tanks 1:72 OKB Grigorov In this review we're looking at a couple of sets of OKB Grigorov's resin replacement tracks. As with the Panther turrets we reviewed a while ago, these don't appear to be intended for a particular base kit, so it'll be up to you to pick the appropriate model and address any fit and finish issues you find. The two sets we have here are both intended for tanks used by the Allies. The Churchill tracks represent the heavy cast steel variant, while the M4 Sherman tracks have added grousers (or cle
  6. Resin Turrets for Panzer V Panther 1:72 OKB Grigorov Last time I reviewed the output of OKB Grigorov, a producer of resin kits and accessories from Bulgaria, their product line up had a distinctly nautical theme. Fast forward a few years and they are still happily churning out the resin, but have now expanded into the world of AFV kits and accessories. In this review we'll take a look at a couple of their replacement Panther turrets. Neither turret appears to be designed for a particular base kit, so it's up to you to pick the appropriate model and run
  7. The old heavy "prime minister" (Churchill) was outdated and urgently needed a replacement. Sawed by the Americans, the T-14 did not cause much joy among the British, as it looked like an ordinary tank. Then the task was given to design an assault tank with the most thick armor. The development was commissioned by Nuffield. On March 13 (Thursday), 1943, the first drawings version of the tank, called the AT-1 (Assault Tank-1), was issued. Weight 45 tons, torsion bar suspension, weapons in a rotating turret, either a 75 mm gun or a 95 mm howitzer. In general, the project was normal and quite
  8. I started another OKB Grigorov's British Nuffield Assault tank, this time it is A.T.1 I think I will not stop until I build all the available Nuffield tanks
  9. This is OKB Grigorov's What if interpretation of German 3 cm Flak Panzer IV Kugelblitz on 9./B.W. chassis in 1/72 scale.
  10. Return Rollers for Pz.IV (4 types) 1:35 OKB Grigorov The Panzer IV went through many changes during its production run with the goal of either improving the design, simplifying production, or a combination of both. This led to a difference in design of return rollers for the vehicle, which is an aspect that isn’t always catered for by injection moulded kit manufacturers. If you’re interested in getting the most realistic and accurate finish on your model, you may well be interested in one or more of these sets from manufacturer OKB Grigorov.
  11. Just purchased from OKB Grigorov....... http://shop.okbgrigorov.com/ A resin kit of the Royal Navy submarine R10 - launched in October 1918 - just to late for the Great War. At just14cm (5.5in) long, the hull is a single superb resin casting - with a separate conning tower and etched brass parts for the diving planes, propeller etc.. The service from OKB was great - just a week from order to delivery - although the box with the hull/brass/instructions arrived first, followed a week later by the conning tower in a separate Jiffy bag!!!
  12. Royal Navy R Class Submarine (700121) 1:700 OKB Grigorov The R Class submarines were a class of 12 small submarines built for the Royal Navy during WWI. They had a hull designed for underwater performance and combined with diesel-electric propulsion gave a submerged speed of 14 knots, Streamlining of the vessel had some disadvantages in that they were hard to control on the surface and submerged. Technology at the time meant the battery took a full day to charge from the engine, but only an hour to drain at full speed! charging more often than not b
  13. Itailian Enrico Toti Class Submarine (700116) 1:700 OKB Grigorov The Enrico Toti Class submarine was a class of 4 coastal submarines built for the Italian Navy in the 1960s. They are named after the 1920s Enrico Toti which was a Balilla Class Submarine, paying homage to Enrico Toti a WWI hero from Italy. These submarines were the first designed and built in Italy since WWII. They are comparable to the German type 205 boats. They were 46m long with a displacement of 535 tonnes. The kit The model arrives in the standard small
  14. Dutch Submarine Class Zwaardvis (700110) 1:700 OKB Grigorov The Zwaardvis (Swordfish) Cllass were ordered by the Dutch MOD in 1965, while originally the use of nuclear propulsion was looked at, the more conventional Diesel-Electric option was used. Partly due to cost reasons and partly as the US looked unfavourably on the Dutch Navy acquiring nuclear submarines. The design is a mirror of the US Navy Barbel Class tear drop hull for noise reduction, further enhanced by the use of a single screw. Two vessel were built for the Dutch Navy, the HNLMS Zwaardvis and HNLMS
  15. Israeli Gal Class Submarine (700119) 1:700 OKB Grigorov The Gal Class submarine (or Type 540) is a modified version of the German HDW Type 206 Submarine. These boats which feature a districting bow dome were built to Israeli specifications by the then Vickers Shipyard in Barrow-In-Furness, in the UK. These were the first submarines built for the Israeli Navy to their own specifications, Politics dictating their being built in the UK rather than Germany. They were only 45m in length displacing 420 tonnes. At one point these Submarines were equipped
  16. Iranian Ghadir Class Submarine (700123) 1:700 OKB Grigorov The Ghadir class submarines are more of a midget submarine suited to coastal waters, they are only 29m long with a displacement of 117 tonnes with a crew of 18. These submarines are based on North Korean Yono Class. It is thought they have a pair of normal 21"/530mm torpedo tubes, and could also fire the VA-111 rocket torpedo. There are currently 23 in the Iranian Navy though details can be hard to pick out from the Propaganda surrounding any Iranian weapons system. The
  17. HMS Oberon Class Submarine Modernised (700052) 1:700 OKB Grigorov The 295.2 feet (90.0 m) long Oberon class (Or more commonly in the RN O Boats) were based heavily on the preceding Porpoise class of submarines, which were in service from 1956 to 1988. Changes from the Porpoise design were primarily to improve the strength and stealth of the submarine. Instead of UXW steel, the hull was built from QT28 steel, which was easier to fabricate and stronger, allowing the submarine to dive deeper. Glass-reinforced plastic was used in construction of the casi
  18. This will be my attempt using The Dad's Army Option. I never though of Iran as having a submarine force, but alas they do, as I discovered as I was browsing Ebay looking for sub kits a while back. I have not built an OKB Grigorov kit before so figured it would be a good excuse to try one out. There are two kits in the box, so I will attempt to build them both at the same time. The kit contains the two resin sub hulls, and a fret of photo etch for each with rear planes, rails, prop, and display stand. It has been quite a while since I have buil
  19. Hello everyone, We have 2 new products, all in 1/72: B72016 Turret for Pz.V Panther, 2 cm Flakvierling, Rheinmetall proposal B72017 Turret for T-34-122, D-11 by Factory No.9 they are available from our shop: http://shop.okbgrigorov.com ...together with several hundreds other sets and kits
  20. Dear all, Here are some images of my recently finished KV-2 Dreadnought from PST in 1:72. This very heavy tank (57 tons) was developed as a bunker buster for the Soviet Army in 1940. Its armour was so thick that the German anti-tank guns couldn't penetrate it. Only the fearsome 88 Flak gun could. On the model I replaced the various handles with brass wire and opened-up the front hatch, meaning I had to scratch build one as well in order to pose it open. I replaced the kit's link-and-length tracks for resin examples from OKB Grigorov, as they are superior to kit parts wh
  21. This is OKB Grigorov's British Nuffield Assault Tank A.T.3 in 72 scale. This is a tank which has never been built, even a prototype, it existed only on drawing papers, hence it is called paper tank. I liked the build, you can check it here:
  22. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 M24 Chaffee from Bulgarian company OKB Grigorov. This was my first build from that manufacturer, and I was pleasantly surprised. The kit has great detail, including metal parts, but it's not easy to assemble. I painted the model with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest, best greetings from Vienna!
  23. The clever lads at OKB Grigorov have just released a brand new injection moulded M24 Chaffee light tank kit in 1/72nd scale - and it's a real gem! All the hatches are separate pieces. The tracks are length-and-link. The mouldings are very cleanly executed and the finesse of the detail is wonderful. This kit blows away the Hasegawa rendering in all measures. Plus, it's very attractively priced. Even just the "basic" version is only 17EU. US Light Tank M24 Chaffee http://shop.okbgrigorov.com/product/639/us-light-tank-m24-chaffee.html The "Mammoth

  25. In an attempt to break my recent rather poor run in GBs, I'm going for something simple: Revell repop of the ESCI 1/72 M48, upgraded with OKB Grigorov running gear and possibly some etch. My references & aftermarket resources for post-WWII AFVs are virtually non-existant, so any help with details and advice on potential sources for suitable decals would be very welcome.
