    Can't remember the name of the beach that was on the base real close. We use to hang out there. We didn't use to go into Agana very many times as the Guamanians didn't like us Navy guys very much. Guam us to get loaded up all the time with Japanese tourists.

          Revision on the next mold after Yankee II. Next mold is 1/72 Foxtrot. Plans I have been using are THE best plans on the planet. Super scale and detailed to the max. If you are wanting to build a Russian sub or build just about any Russian 1/350 submarine model in resin then send Boris Volkov a email. I own several of his models and have several of his plans. Ask Dave how good they are. Some of his plans are Alfa, Charlie I, Yankee II, Typhoon, Foxtrot, Akula,Kilo,Lada,Mike,Papa just to name a few. It is Boris Volkov email is rusubs@yandex.ru Tell Boris I sent you.

              Those are beautiful resin kits! And well assembled, painted and presented as well. Very good work on display at that site.

                        Evaluating the authority of plans of something as cloaked in secrecy as a nations combat submarines is hard to do. Post war all sorts of source material came out and presented in model-builder form by some reputable (floating drydock and Seagull), and simply awful (Wiswesser and 'fan' based work) plan services of submarine subjects.

                        As a young man, Soviet submarine source material was just not available to me this side of the 'confidential/secret classification divide. Most frustrating -- I 'knew' some neat ****, but could not disclose it. With the fall of the Wall, long after those times, things have changed over there. Even the Russian design bureaus are cranking out 'public relations' material that is most useful to the model builder.

                        I do know the ALFA, and I must say that the Boris Volkov plans of that boat are authoritative! I have to assume that his other work is source-material based. I recommend his work. I'm gathering documentation on the YANKEE and FOXTROT … Yeah! that again! … and his plans are front and center of those projects.

                        An aside, if you will permit me: When, and if, you buy Boris Volkov plans. Please pay the man! Don't accept copies from a 'friend'. You steal this guys work, he looses money, and he drops out of the business and we go without his excellent services. And that means file transfer of his work from computer to computer without compensating Boris. OK?

                            I should have made it clear I was not talking about you, sir. Once I start bloviating like that I take out the occasional innocent through 'friendly-fire'. To be clear: I was not addressing the 'no pay' comment at you.

                            My apology for my scatter-shot post under your post. I'm an idiot.
