OKB Grigorov has provided another very nice kit with the Israeli Gal submarine which represent a diesel-electric submarine developed and constructed in the Vickers Shipyard in the UK for the Israeli Navy. They were based on the German 206 class submarines. The “Gal” (Hebrew for Wave) class entered service in the late 1970’s and were all replaced by the Dolphin Class by the early 2000’s.
- One resin part
- Two very small photoetch sheets
The detail quality is great; The resin submarine is very delicate an you need to be carefully removed from the resin base.
There was no instruction sheet provided, this was not a problem as it was a simple build.
The Assembly is quick and easy.
The metal stand is a good addition to the kit.
The final part is painting.
This is my seventh one of these great kits and I really enjoy building these and they make a wonderful display all lined up.
Thanks go to OKB for providing this kit to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them
