That is an oddly interesting announcement from MikorMir as
I have built this at least 2 years ago.

Note:
In my copy of the PE fret, the triangular tower supports were
not hollow as shown in the pic but were solid...replaced with
scratch built styrene ones with the proper holes.

Kit was originally released in 2016..perhaps a re release?
Cheers,

I guess Mikro Mir thought a slightly revised photoetch sheet justified a re-release. Not much new, but it is good to see a model of this important sub available again.

Thanks for sharing Tim.

Had no idea someone did a kit of this.

A few years ago I got the chance to go on the Holland at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum at Gosport. It's very small and cramped!
They did a fantastic job of restoring the submarine and it's kept in a humidity controlled room.
