[MOC] Cold War ships, 1:350

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

Allow me to introduce my new series of MOC.  To begin -  Russian frigates pr.1135 (NATO designation - "Krivak").  Built in LDD. Scale 1: 350.

Frigates pr.1135  - a unique series of warships, held at the Navy of the USSR and then Russia, Ukraine and India since the early 1970's to the present. In total 49 ships were built, and the construction of a serious improvement is still ongoing.

I wonder what the Glomar Explorer would look like in that scale? The father in law of my aunt was deployed on the mission the Glomar took to recover that Soviet sub; and I think it would look good in your fleet.

Yes, it was a unique expedition. Nothing like that ever since nobody in the world did not hold. It is a pity that not all the dead sailors were able to raise to the surface.
Maybe I'll try to make this ship, but not in the near future.

Superb builds just as a thought have you thought of the type 42 destroyrs though most were air defence built and designed for the Cold War

Thanks! Here is another model of the ship, whose hull is not bad :-)

Thank you! :-)

now there is an underrated carrier.  should do the Karel Doorman next (R81) or HMS Ark Royal (R09).

 

Thank you!  R09 Ark Royal was in the plans, I want to make it a model of the period prior to disposal, with the Phantoms and Buccaneers. Karel Doorman .... hmm ... perhaps, but let it be ARA Veinticinco de Mayo (V-2) :)

Beautiful ships!! Have you built any of them in actual bricks so far (or plan to)?

Thanks! Yes, of course! Initially, I built models in actual bricks. But in LDD is much easier with a choice of detail, and, most importantly, with the choice of color.

For example - anti-submarine destroyer PR. 1155 "Udaloy"

Canadian anti-submarine aircraft carrier! Add to the list. Need to look for what ships could be in his escort. Before 1970, I don't know the canadian Navy.

Love the ships!  Are you doing "exact" 1/350 scale or best approximation with LEGO pieces?

I have found that 1 stud = 10 ft is roughly 1/380 scale.  Doing ships at this scale requires creative building techniques to achieve desired form/shape. And there are always compromises in getting the details sized correctly.  

I noticed the inveted 1x1 "with tooth" pieces used to paired with another 1x1 to represent a small boat on a few of the models.  I thought that was a really creative use of that part for that particular detail!

If LEGO could get over their issue with "contemporary military vehicles", I think a line of ships at this scale (similar to the architecture series) would be a good seller.  They could do 1 or 2 a year mixing up commercial cargo ships and military ships both modern and historic vessels.  There are plenty of museum ships that these type of sets might sell well in gift shops, etc.
