Starling Models 1/350 & 1/700 T class submarine.

Recommended Posts

Royal Navy submarine fans are in for a treat, as the second release is the T-class Group III vessel HMS Tabard, which will be available in 1/350 as a single kit, and 1/700, the latter supplying sufficient parts for one full-hull and one waterline model. These will also be accompanied by PE and turned brass accessories and are planned for the third quarter of 2018.

I obtained one of these at SMW in November. Recently I found out that with a little work you can build an earlier Group II from this kit. Looks like I need another one.

Mine arrived two days ago. The one piece hull is one of the most complex sets of shapes ever, and the molding is beautiful. The finish as well. 

I'd be afraid to try modding it to make a Group II. Maybe Pit Road will think of reissuing theirs--or someone else will copy it in injection.

I'm so far planning on a Far East boat. Every pic I've found of  them out there shows a dark overall color--any clue if it's blue or grey?

Mike from Starling says that it would be a 'to bigger job'.

I asked a similar question about the U Class and I think you'll find that for the Far East, the colour will be blue. Will PM you with what I've been given.
