Project 1164 Slava – Moskva
The Kit is from Trumpeter in a 1/700 scale that brings a good set to represent this ship both in full hull and in waterline. The model is sufficient to be built out of box, although the radars must be supplemented with photo-etched parts. The radars of this class of Russian ships and of the Kirov series are large and are better with photo-etched. In my case I have used a generic set of radars and guardrails as a complement.
I have added small details in scracht and taking advantage of other leftovers from photobrawing to give more details to the model. The chains are made of copper wire, antennas and small elements of the electronic complex of the ship.
The paints used were Vallejo Model Air 907 (FS36473) for the structures and 70.818 (Red Leather) for the cover. For the base I almost always use the Frank Sparh method on my models and finish with a medium gel with cotton.
