I have not put my Alfa in the water yet,but I asked a lot of questions from some patient people.The consesus was it is not required.A 1/96 Akula next to a 1/72 Alfa,size-wise,is pretty close. It should be fine.
But,while I am here,where can I get blue prints/drawings of a 1/72 Akula? I cannot find Deep Sea Designs website.Is there another source?
