SSN 683 Parche Model

Postby Chuck Chesney » Mon May 26, 2014 5:13 pm

I have been interested in the possibility of using one of the Mobeus Sturgeon models as a basis for building a SSN 683 Parche. It would require the addition of a 100ft (scale feet) plug just forward of the sail, as well as some deckhouse scratch building modifications, but would result in a model with lots of interior room, and could pay homage to one of the most famous of the Cold War subs.
Has anybody built a Parche, and are there any plans available? This is a Blind Mans Bluff hero, and could make a great model.
Thanks, Chuck

Issue #9 of the SubCommittee Report has a article on Parche and several diagrams starting on page 13.

This is a drawing I made based off those drawings and other Sturgeon plans.
