"Formidable" class cruiser, 1:350
Missile cruiser pr.58 "Formidable" ("Grozny", NATO designation - "Kynda" class). I have long hesitated to start the construction of this model has not yet decided what has to gain enough experience design)))
About this creation


The world's first guided missile cruiser special construction.




The cruiser was revolutionary for its time design. At the same time the Soviet shipbuilders managed to make the ship not only heavily armed, but also very beautiful.




It is the project of 58 were given the main directions of development of ocean missile-carrying fleet of the USSR. A massive pyramidal tower, hung with "clusters" of antenna devices became especially Soviet naval design.




For its size - total displacement of 5500 tons, the cruiser was carrying a very strong weapons, even by modern standards.




The main strike force comprised 16 heavy supersonic cruise missile "P-35" with a range of 100 to 300 km, depending on the flight program. At the same time, the ship was able to accommodate a full artillery, torpedo weapons and air defense missile system.




In one salvo could ship issued 8 4-ton missiles. Another 8 rockets were stored in the cellars.




It is no coincidence one of the ships of the project was honored to be named after the heroic cruiser "Varyag".




Two "Varyag" - modern cruiser "Slava" class (the flagship of the Russian Pacific Fleet) and his predecessor.




Cruisers served in the Soviet and then the Russian Navy for 40 years from 1962 to 2002. Over the years, these cruisers have become one of the symbols of Soviet naval power. Their recognizable look portrayed on the posters, filmed movies. Here, for example, a postage stamp with the image of the ship))




My model is sustained in the scale of 1: 350, for the construction took 534 pieces (only 414 - above the waterline). Photos in high definition in VK

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Great looking ship! I was curious, I noticed that the decks are brown on most Soviet ships. Are they wooden decks over steel or are they painted that color?
Than you! Initially it was wooden planks on decks, as well as everywhere in the world at that time. Later, the deck began to paint special paint (red lead) brown or less reddish-brown color. It is also used green, sometimes combined with brown. On the newest ships use gray as the NATO ships.

Quoting Gabor Pauler Best of your bow constructions so far.
Thank you, Gabor! Perhaps ... but in my estimation the most perfect hull I did for cruisers Slava or Jeanne d'Arc. Soon I completed yet cruiser Colbert - there will also be an interesting hull.
