Trumpeter 1/144 Romeo Class Submarine

This isn't a bad kit, although I believe the conning tower is a bit inaccurate. It makes up into a reasonably sized model that looks pretty good. I decided on a North Korean submarine after seeing some picture of Kimmy boy riding on one. I liked the green top colour, I have no idea what the anti-fowling paint colour was, but a wine red colour seemed plausible enough. I had a bit of fun with weathering, I figured these things would be pretty battered, they are over 50 years old afterall.

I agree, that staining around the water line is superb! How'd you achieve that? :thumbsup:

 

Thanks guys. I used MiG pigments industrial grey or something like that with a little brown and rust. I painted on a little bit of matt medium then dabbed on the pigment until it had built up into what you see. I tried to replicate what I saw on other soviet subs that were out of the water, the barnacles and crap attached to the hull is a grey-brown kinda colour and I probably could have gone a lot harder. Some subs are completely covered under the water line!

Wow - the RFI section has suddenly just lit up with submarines. Submarines everywhere! Got to love it!

 

I really like this model. I have seen the photos of the fat little jerk in question going for a ride in ‘his’ submarine and think you have the garish green just right!

Very nicely done - the weathering is excellent and nice to see a sub in a colour other than grey!

Really nice job.

I also thought about doing a North Korean boat after seeing those photos.

If I ever get round to it, id be plenty happy if it turns out like yours.

 

My only criticism is it doesn't have a certain somebody up on the bridge looking outwards with pride for his 60 year old naval technology.
