Just finished as "Arctic corsair" (but I think that shape is not authentic 100%)
Same Revell's kit in different colors is known as "Volga" - Russian spy ship.

Very nice build and rigging. How big is the actual model? It's one of those funny scales that Revell seem to have in abundance for nautical items, so I always find it difficult to judge without a reference standard.

How old is this kit  :?:  I'm sure I remember my uncle building one of these (or something like it) when I was a nipper  :roll:

Good job BTW  :wink:

'List of ship kits' says it's about 375mm/14 3/4" long.

I'm pretty sure that one of the variations Revell has used the moulds for was in the very first Revell catalogue I go back in 1969 (from an advert in the Hornet comic). Them were the days  :D

You are certainly digging up and commenting I some old threads. Sadly in many cases the people who posted them are no longer active on here to see them and respond to you. As a suggestion have a look and see if the people whose work you are commenting on,are actually active still on the forum - but just posting elsewhere.... then you might have more response.

I overlooked this thread when originally posting my models on ATF. I have one photo of it in my portfolio, so here are a few more:

1970 according to my files. It was first announced at the 1970 trade fair as Kandahar. The American issue was as a "Russian Spy Trawler", though it is definitely a Humber built vessel.

Thanks for the comments :)
I have no reference to when I purchased this model :shrug: ( all my models are now digitally photographed and referenced since joining the Airfix Tribute Forum!). It was built within the last 10 years. Googling produced a picture of the box art . That much I do remember!

Nice job Robert, I had this for years in its "Russian Spy Trawler" guise until it was accidentally crushed beyond repair, was going to rebuild it with micro RC gear.
