Again, one of my older models - this time a B-123 – proj. 705K Lira (NATO: Alfa) – class submarine. It shows the sub in her 1990 guise. Building process was quite long (ca. 5 months) and although the shape of Maquette kit is fairly accurate, the[...]

U-Boot Biber

So, I’m back with another midget submarine this time the German Biber from WW2. I don’t know what it is with these submarines but they just appeal to me and I have the utmost respect for the men that operated them. As for the model, I’m happy t[...]

Great little 1/350 kit from Hobby Boss. This is second Soviet era submarine of a growing fleet of Russian subs I'm building. Watch this space for more to come.
