                To be more precise:to me the model looks too blunt at the bow, the distance from bow to sail seems too short, the sail too high but too short and the whole rear section to short as well

                      Nope.but i know of several blueprints/drawings/etc. of the 667' class that are entirely wrong and having built one rc model as well as several 3d cad models and having investigated and having done a lot of research on those ships it is my impression your model might be off-scale. No other background.if you are happy with the look, go on, this is your model.but it was my impression on that forum one is interested in positive critics.you dont want that, i wont bother you anymore

                        I can understand your concerns and thanks. Plans I am using are cad drawings from a guy named Boris in Russia. I have several of his plans and they are spot on.His company is Polar Bear Construction. I have made 6 other submarine molds.
