It’s only half the size of the last submarine and has far fewer parts. But it still brims with details and a complete interior design.

This set was provided to me by MISINI
The submarine is built in segments, starting at the stern with the reactor. A number of silver parts are used here. More and more plates follow, on which the rest of the interior is built. This includes launchers, bridge, accommodation, storage and propulsion. The large plates between the decks are not stabilized from below and press through a lot. In some places I lined them myself with 1×1 plates to make assembly easier. Sometimes the order is a bit clumsy and it’s much easier to remove entire plates and build them separately.
After the interior is finished, the floor is closed with plates and slopes. This should happen directly on the boat, which is almost impossible. This would destroy the fragile interior. So I also built it outside and only then attached it. The large side covers can be attached quite easily. They can be removed just as easily to access the interior fittings.
Even if it is a Chinese submarine, most people hardly know the differences to western submarines. The many details ensure a long building fun. Some areas are structurally related but rather unstable and I would have chosen the order differently here and there. Otherwise there is a good brick quality at a low price.
