1/700 - Who'da Thunk ?
Posted by Tanker - Builder on Thursday, April 12, 2018 9:56 AM


 Just had to chime in here . I never thought I would have fun on 1/700 ships .These Krivack II that I have are actually fun ! I never thought that I could have fun like this on such teensy ships . Plus they are a modelers delight as far as molding too .

 I looked over the models carefully and I do believe they are Skywave kits to start with .      The delicacy with which masts and such are molded , came as a surprise . So I am happily modeling away , soon to have them finished .

Skywave has always made nice kits.

Chasing the ultimate build.

TB, you've got me.  You say "I do believe they are Skywave kits to start with".  As far as I know the ONLY 1/700 Krivaks are Skywave(Pitroad).  Does the box for yours have a different brand name?  Did somebody else re-package them?

I will see ;

 No repackage ! According to the very tiny readable print on the side . They are Skywave .

Lot,s of Chinese writing and then nothing .The Box looks like it was in water for a while .Surprisingly the decals were in a little bitty Ziploc type bag .
