trumpeter seawolf kit - first picture of sprue

Static Submarine modelers unite!

Postby Boss subfixer » Mon Nov 08, 2004 12:59 pm

Has anyone heard what the release date is? The last I heard was early November. I want to use this model in a shadow box for a Chief that is retiring next year. I also plan on documenting the process of putting the shadow box together for an article in the SCR, If anyone is interested in different ways to display your static kits.
Thanks

little buggers, those seawolves....

I have no clue about what a shadow box is, so an
article would be welcome !

:O

I am sooooo waiting to hear when this will hit the stores, I have all most everything here to build the internals but now is the waiting game as always. :-(

might be like the Revell kit last year being delayed by 4-6 months.

Hobby Link Japan has (had?) them in stock.
They're on their way, I guess.

Matt,

short of some folks on here and the builders of the seawolf, no one would know that the kit is wrong. :D

I wish somebody can find out when this thing hits our shores,last time I had to wait 9 months for the Revell kit so I hope the trumpeter kit won't take nearly as long.

any pricing so far?

Got it !
Apparently, a shipment made it to the netherlands.

quality is mediocre, very few parts, and it is harder to convert this thing than it is to convert the kilo.
This due to position of rudders and the way the put the
kit together. Hull warp might also be large.

due to moving house my internet connection broke down.

it will fit a tube of 38 cm length at 7.5 cm diameter.

somebody please check if a wtc 3 will fit these dimensions.

pictures when my link @home is up again.
Regards,

Ronald van Aalst

Hi Ronald,
Thanks for the info. Do you think you could fit a 2.75 inch x 17 inch tube? 7x43 CM for you metric people. :D Thanks, Dave.
