Mine is on order-can't wait! I'm relieved to see it looks as accurate as the Kilo. What are your plans for a WTC?

From where did you order one? It does look nice. maybe a small scale kit might be a good place to start for me...

Hey,

I only found a picture of a sprue on the Internet.
I will get the kit itself when it is sold here, and that
will be no sooner than December.

Sorry...

@bob Cowan :
I hope it can fit a larger diameter WTC. But first I am
converting (read tearing down) the kilo wtc.
I try to "improve" and put in a small ballast tank.

If all else fails I will make both kits accept the same
wtc.

Yes, I'm in Canada and have been told December or more likely January. There was a delay as the original release date was this month.

Sadly, if you look at the LOA of the model they used the very old and out of date plans which indicate the Seawolf is 353' long which is dead wrong. The boat is 361' long. But, in this scale it will be somewhat difficult to see unless you are looking hard at it.

While most people say it as overall length, LOA and LBP are the traditional shipbuilders ways of stating it. LBP is Length Between Perpendiculars. The fore and aft perpendiculars are perpendicular to the base line of the ship. They intersect the keel at the points furthest fore and aft. The LOA is usually longer than the LBP - and allows the ship to carry more weapons or cargo.

...and then there's always the LWL!

p.s. LWL = length at the waterline
