Interesting wake pattern in the first and third shot.

I expect that we will get to see a lot of close up detail views of her appear on websites in the near future.

A boon for anyone wanting to build a Slava class. I have a set of line drawings with hull lines on my computer if anyone is interested. They are not great but they would be a start.

Looks like someone has been busy already getting some great shots to share with the world.

Now all we need is the ship to open this Thursday and also hope we really get some good close ups all over the ship.
If anyone finds good images of the ship please share with us here.

Hi Mike,

I am currently away from home (Brisbane), due back at the end of the month. I have purchased a set of Slava plans from Ozpirate and hope to start a scratchbuild in 1/72 as soon as I get home.

I would love to have a look at your line drawings, every bit of infor helps.

BTW, the wake shape is due to a tunnel that she has between the props.

Regards,

Andrew

As mentioned, here is a drawing of Slava's hull lines that I found some time back in a dark recess of the net.
