TK-17 Arkangelsk : a long road of patience

Postby Gabriel l » Tue May 01, 2012 2:54 pm

Hello everyone !

First of all, I will notice you that you can follow my building thread from the start here on TK-17's Captain log : http://www.wis-nha-tenebris.com/index.p ... ut=default
And here for recent input : http://www.scalesub.com/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=37

I'm apologize about my bad english, Still a froggies after all, and I will try to keep you inform about my TK-17's project in futur, here and on Scalesub forum with english subtitle when it need the most.

When I started this project, wooow 2007, I wish to achieved the most accurate models from Engels Kit inspire by Ramesh work on TK-20. This was a long road to gather informations, pictures materials, and a lot of headache to proceed proper modifications without compromise integrity of the hull. I wish to thank Wayne of course, Ramesh and some friends to support me during this years !

Actually, I almost finish the hard part of this achievment. I still need to add a lot of details like tiny grid, doors on the hull and finishing to get a smooth surface for painting. Recently I've detected some leaks who need my attention, no big deal but time waste. I need also add some lead ballast to get proper waterline (upper waterline) and then she will put to see this summer if I have time to complete last structurals modifications. Final painting will be come later I think !

I also barely finish the new vectorised plan for TK-17. And then I will work on TK-208 after her recent 941UM refit (bulava modification etc...). Recently I have new information about TK-17 and I'm still perplexe about what I've learn. I'm waiting pictures to confirm, and will discuss about this later.

I have no plan yet for "batch two" TK-12, TK-13 and TK-202

Here is some pictures extract from captain's log :

Excellent!!!! Put it all here!! An excellent example of scale submarine modelling!
The leading edge of the sail is silver? A camera?

S'il vous plaît pardonnez mon post sur les plans, il semble que vous les avez ici. Merci beaucoup!

Thank you for this excellent post and I will assume the drawings above are the more accurate ones which answers my question from a different post.
Peace,
Tom
If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

I will chime in here.
His revised plans are extremely accurate. They are accurate enough, they are specific to TK17.
It would be interesting to list the modifications and differences between your TK17 , and the origional Engel hull. I remember many of them, and can see them. But to the readers here, the troubles you went through would be appreciated when you show them.
Footnote, my friend. My X tail Akula came back to me yesterday in the mail.

Salmon> send me an MP with your mail adress I will see what I can do for you :)

Ok Wayne, I will do a "resumé" for you about differences and modifications ;)

1- Conning tower :

Image
Image

2- Castor Tail

This modification is 100% accurate for TK-208 and TK-20, I've dry photo of this part. Recently I've doubt for TK-17 :? so perhaps I do wrong when I modify this part... I'm waiting to find TK-17 on dry dock to confirm :
Image
Image
Image

3- Port and starbord towed sonar array

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image


4- Rudders

5- Reactor cooling inlets

6- Housing Tactical Communication buoys

7- Escape pod location and details

Image

Image

8- A lot of other details

9- Other details

Image
Image

10 - Technics

Image

Image
Image
Image
Image

Engel's modify and create "tech Carrier" for WTC after I've done modification on bow plane servo, so a part of this work is no need now. I'm still have to do some details and etching on missile deck

Image
Image
Image

Safety rail on TK-17 are different that I've done but modify them should compromise hull integrity.

Image

So, basically all modification I've done on Engel's hull :)

Hi Gabriel, good to see you on here and glad to see she is finally nearing completion. I took a break from model subs to do some other stuff (I remember you did the same a couple of year ago!), but seeing your progress has now got me thinking about starting on a new Engel Typhoon again :)

Today, it start awfully wrong !

I have this picture of Typhoon since several months and I've a doubt about her identity. Now I've confirmation it TK-17 !
Image

And then my nightmare begin !
I don't know yet when this photo was taken (perhaps 1991) but I can tell on things, this [censored] has keel on her sides. Meaning it has a "castor tail" short as TK-12 and the unmodified's Engel hull !
Image

And there, I have a case of conscience because I haven't the courage to redo this part ! And of course I need to update my plan until I have confirmation of 2002 Refit remove/modify that part >_<

Furthermore, I continue to work on the shuttering of the ballast. I will soon be able to put resin and lead ball

Image

Image

I've made with plasticard Evergreen the maintenance box of towed sonar array. One of them on port side has just be placed !

Image

Now I'm going to sleep for a while... too stressfull this day was !
