There's a 1/72 Seehund submarine kit

There's also a 1:35 scale G-5 class Soviet torpedo boat.  Someone ought to make one in a smaller scale...or scale up a Bear to 1:32 :wacko:

The Bear & the Whale(back), new Tom Clancy novel in the wings....
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Hmmm, I've got an Airfix Whaleback too..............  ;)

How would it look with red stars on the side?
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! :)

Micro Mir are bringing out a 1/72 Kalinin K-7 so you could use that as a carrier for small boats or subs and simply say it was the Badger's inspiration.  ;)

The K-7's layout is ideally suited for such a project as well  :thumbsup:

A K-7 in 1/72 could carry a WHOLE Badger, couldn't it?  :o
