I don't know if anyone has seen this yet but Bronco have released a kit of Britain's Trident sub.

There is some info, including computer generated images, here... http://www.militarymodelling.com/news/a ... asp?a=4985

Excellent news! I just built their Song class, I like their kits. Finally, some innovation in 1/350 injection... If I am not mistaken, this is the first 1/350 injection kit of a ballistic missile sub since the Italeri Ohio.

You could be right. I think that the Italeri originally released by Dragon if I am not mistaken.

I am just happy I will have another kit of a Barrow-built vessel to add to my stash.

Ah, I forgot the Russians. There is a Delta IV from Alanger and a number of Typhoons from various companies.
And you are right - there are not many models of British subs out there at all. I wonder why?

A fifth Trident boat will be built in Barrow as my kit arrived, in the post, today. As one would expect, with a sub, there are very few parts in the box.

I will have more photos soon.

Hobbyeasy in Hong Kong but, for some reason, the site does not appear to be working at the moment.

EDIT.
Back up now.

Here is a link to the kit... http://www.hobbyeasy.com/en_US/prod/44741.html

If you should choose to order from them you should be aware that their site is very slow, at least it was for me. At times it may appear that nothing is happening but just be patient and it gets there in the end.
