Trumpeter Sovremenny

Sovremenny 670. Trumpeter kit not the easiest kit, add some generic PE to make it look better.

Blaubar How is the fit of the ship? It is looking just great.

Sven Schönyan Very mice model
15. December 2016, 07:52
Bart Goesaert looks very good, also the weathering... subtle, not to much, very good... More detailed pictures are more than welcome ;)

Stefan Schacht very nice!

Lex Jassies Sangat bagus Danumurthi! Like the overal looks and the weathering. I would also like to see some detail pictures.

Danumurthi Mahendra thanks guys, Lex and Bart just added some more detail close up shots. hope you like them

Danumurthi Mahendra @Blaubar - fit was mediocre the most. lost of sanding and dry fitting. Sprue gates were thick at the most and need careful when cutting them off.

Danumurthi Mahendra @Lex Jassies - Terimakasih, kawan!

Łukasz Gliński Very nice build, the shading is my fav part of it (it makes the kit much more realistic)
15. December 2016, 12:59
Blaubar okay, so it seems that all their larger part kits are ###. Was just curious if they manage to have anything without massive ejector marks, bad fitting and not much grate and misalignment.

Danumurthi Mahendra Plenty of that @Blaubar here. amazing. I think a lot of time I lost my mojo. because its just excessive clean-up. bits of putty here and there. drives me nuts. it was hard to look at it and go back to work.

Bart Goesaert too bad of that, but it's a beautiful ship... wanted to use this one to practice building ships

Blaubar Agreed Dan, I have come up with the magic Trumpeter formulas: 1/2T(workhours)=S(scratching) 2/5T=C(cleaning and filing hours)^^ I am impressed how you managed to keep the mojo up. The kits could be so awesome if just a bit more attenion would be paid.

gorbygould Wow! Excellent model.

Danumurthi Mahendra @Blaubar LoL on the formula. I only wish I had donned this 110%. I have only added generic PE railings. If I had opted a complete set with rigging and whip antennas, it might look a lot different.

MRMLA Looks very, very well!

C. B. Outstanding work :)

Spanjaard I missed this one back in the day. Nice job. You are certainly a multidisciplinary builder....and do great on all of them
17. June 2019, 19:19
Neuling I fully agree with Spanjaard!
17. June 2019, 19:51
Danumurthi Mahendra Much thanks, @C.B., @Spanjaard, and @Neuling! I try to mix it up a bit to keep me motivated.

Treehugger I have a similar kit to be built. I wonder if it might be possible to place some transparent sheet of plastic at the bridge windows, or if the windows then becomes too deep. I can't imagine working with individual window sheets, but instead using a large foil for all the window surfaces.

Chris Greathouse I'm on the missed out before boat too... Great work! The weathering is wonderful!

Holger Kranich Hi Danumurthi, now Comes something different from you but again beautiful executed.
27. June 2019, 06:35
Danumurthi Mahendra Thanks @Chris Greathouse and @Holger Kranich! @Treehugger - yes very possible with thin transparent plastic sheets that you can buy at office supply stores.

Gerald Willing Very nice result
28. June 2019, 08:02
Danumurthi Mahendra Thanks @Gerald Willing. I wish there were more rigging to it.

Tim Heimer another nice piece for your collection! Nice work!

Danumurthi Mahendra Thanks @Tim and @Mike!

Treehugger A really nice display piece I think. :)
28. September 2019, 19:24
Danumurthi Mahendra Thanks much @Treehugger

Benoit Mathier Very nice one Monti. You're a true "allrounder".
Boats, Tanks, Planes. And you master all of them.
