The design of the “Tashkent” was unusually avant-garde at the time. It was one of the few large ships capable of speeds exceeding 40 knots during World War II. After the transformation in 1942, the firepower was even upgraded to the level of light cruisers. During World War II, her main mission was to serve as a transport ship for personnel and materials. Among the Soviet ships that transported supplies to Sevastopol , the “Tashkent” was quite legendary. Even the Germans knew its name. It transported supplies to the besieged Soviet army dozens of times before being hit by the Luftwaffe. In more than 90 air strikes, the Germans dropped more than 400 bombs and 10 torpedoes . After being withdrawn to the Novorossiysk naval base, the “Tashkent” was completely blown up on the berth in an air raid on July 2. It was salvaged in 1944 and demolished in 1945 because it had no repair value.Product number 05357product name Russian “Tashkent” destroyer 1942Bar code 9580208053578Product ratio 1:350product type Plastic Model Warship KitModel size Length: 399.1mm Beam: 39.1mm Total number of parts 220+Metal parts anchor chainEtched parts 1 piece Film n/aResin parts n/aTotal number of offsets 6 sprues, lower hull and deckAnnounced date 2020-10More description-the kit contains over 220 parts-the hull made from two-directional slide molds-Contains display stand-photo etched parts included Share this:TweetPrintWhatsAppEmailShare on TumblrTelegramPocketLike this:Like Loading...
