The 1/700 Kiev Takes Shape

Started working on the 1/700 Kiev this weekend. I decided not to use the Aoshima kit because the details were so bad and so was the fit. So I stuck with the Trumpeter kit instead. Again, everything is a trade off. The Aoshima kit gives you the ability to display the flight deck elevators down, while the Trumpeter one does not. However, the details are sharper on the Trumpeter kit.

Since I had a full day to myself, I got a lot done. Nearly all of the major subassemblies were completed, including the complicated radars. I'll show those in a separate posting.

Here's some of the in progress shots of the carrier:
