While i was in the hobbyshop, I noticed a
Zvesda(?) kit depicting a russian "oriol" type sub.
Never heard of that class.
what was the Nato name ?
and is the kit worth Euro/$ 30 ?
Regards,

The Oriol is an Oscar class missile sub (I think) the kit costs about 50$ here in Canada I don't know what the Euro price is: Oriol sub
280 meters.... and she's still in one piece!

Oriol is probably one of the boat for Oscar class subs.

Hi,
The Oriol kit is almost absoluletly identical to one of the Kursk.
The difference it the box, decals, and plastic part for standing with "Oriol" instead of "Kursk" plate.

here is links:

Cool links!

I have never seen the Kurk model is such detail, the first link had layouts of the parts too! I found the model in a local hobby shop, cost about 44$ or so. I wonder if it is big enough to insert a motor or two.

I don't remember the exact size of the Kursk model. But it is a 1/350 scale model :D

I have unbuilt Oriol kit. If you need exact dimentions or pictures against something like a bottle of wine I can make shots. Let me know.

The price in Moscow about 10 USD.
In Germany 22 EURO.


Here is another link to Kursk:

it is 1:400 scale

Looks like houl is 941 project, not 941A.
