Hello,

Finally found this one cheap...
No matter if you buy Typhoon or Red October - you'll get the same innaccurate model of Project 941 submarine. But it's quite big and easy to modify.
"The hunt for Red October" movie used modified Typhoon as a title sub. Red October was longer - I found photos that leave no questions. I'm not going to make my Red October longer ot to make conn tower smaller but I'll add doors and exhausts for caterpillar propulsion system as in movie. Firts of all - studio model photos found on Modeler's Miniatures & Magic website:



Model is very simple , so after an hour you'll get this:


Now it's time to cut out propulsion inlet doors and exhausts...

It's worth reading and seeing both, there's large areas of the plot  that don't match up, but don't let that deter you, they're both pretty good.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Wow, look at those panel lines and trenches! That sub would have been noisier than possums fighting over the last scrap of garbage!

Looking forward to the model.

Agreed.  Especially Connery speaking Russian with his accent.

I think they'd hired Matchbox's old trencher/moldmaker.  :wacko:
