Gold Medal Models – 1/700 – SOVIET CARRIER
This upgraded No. 700-31 Soviet Aircraft Carrier set provides parts for the Trumpeter Kiev/Minsk kits, the Aoshima Kiev/Minsk kits, and the Trumpeter Admiral Kuznetsov kit (special parts for Italeri’s Admiral Kuznetsov kit are no longer furnished.) The pre-shaped flight deck rails and 3-D relief-etched flight deck safety nets are designed to fit all the above-mentioned plastic kits precisely (separate parts are provided for Aoshima’s and Trumpeter’s Kiev-class kits due to slight differences in the shapes of the kit parts), as do all the radars, masts, deck crane, and yardarms.
A wide variety of Soviet/Russian radars are included, and these incorporate a number of new antennas never before available from any manufacturer. They include the following (all listed as NATO code names): Top Sail, Top Steer, Top Plate, Plate Steer, Palm Frond, Strut Pair, Pop Group, Cross Sword, and Head Light. Multiple sets of the last five radars are furnished. Other items included are railings in various styles, special flight deck netting for all ships requiring them, highly detailed masts, yardarms, Kiev-class crane, helicopter and carrier aircraft details, ECM & other antennas in a wide variety of styles, plus much more.
