Gold Medal Models - Shipsets


This revised 700-9 set will equip the Skywave kits of the Krivak-class frigates, Sovremenny-class and Udaloy-class destroyers, and the Pit-Road/Trumpeter and Dragon kits of the Kirov-class battlecruisers. Special dedicated parts are provided for both Pit-Road/Trumpeter and Dragon kits of the Kirovs due to slight differences in the moldings. This latest version of the 700-9 is vastly improved and much larger than the original version and outstrips all other Soviet warship fittings sets in terms of technical accuracy, completeness of detail, and ease of assembly. 3-D relief etching is being used to add details such as reinforcing gussets on masts, frames on backs of solid radar screens, multi-level grilles on open-grid radars, watertights doors, and so on. Carefully designed fold lines make complex parts easy to form to final shape such as masts, yardarms, radars, and other fittings.

A wide variety of Soviet/Russian radars are included, and these incorporate a number of new antennas never before available from any manufacturer. These include the following (all listed as NATO code names): Top Pair, Top Steer, Top Plate, Plate Steer, Palm Frond, Strut Pair, Head Net "C", Pop Group, and Cross Sword. Multiple sets of the last five radars are furnished. GMM's Russian radars are now the most accurate and most detailed ever produced in any scale thanks to excellent photos of the prototypes we've managed to acquire. Other items being included are railings in various styles, special flight deck netting for all ships requiring them, highly detailed masts, yardarms, helicopter details, ECM & other antennas in a wide variety of styles, plus much more.

A nearly perfect, but unauthorized copy of the GMM designed-Russian radar set included in this product has recently been released by Lion Roar of China. Although the owners of Lion Roar dispute this, a comparison of the parts in their product with the original designs in GMM's version released in 2004 indicates beyond doubt that there is little to no chance this could be a mere coincidence as Lion Roar is claiming. Lion Roar's designers were somehow unable or unwilling to include some of the relief-etched details, locator pins, and complex radar screen grids that are included in the GMM set. Despite this, their copy is nearly perfect in about 95% of the shapes, geometry, and details.

The unauthorized copy is so obvious that several website managers have agreed to discontinue publicizing and reviewing Lion Roar products until this problem has been corrected. In addition, several dealers have indicated they will no longer order or carry Lion Roar products for the same reason.
