Wish I had had that akula/typhoon photo Mike, way back when I was developing the kit.
It's also amazing in 2 other aspects, the props bosses with the, what I call ( ' bastard vortex actuators' ) which I seem to have got fairly accurate. I can't remember how !
Also those 'drunken' ? sailors on the ' quarterdeck' which appears to have ice on it, or at least looks very slippery with what appears to be water dripping off the edge, very scary ! but a great photo. Keep em comin'.

The Russian Navy is considering a major overhaul of the Akula class submarines in service, extending their service lives by up to 25 years.

The oldest of the boats, “Pantera” (K-317) was commissioned in 1990, the youngest, "Gepard” (K-335) commissioned in 2001.
