Darcy saw her vulnerability and moved in, caressing her cheek softly . . . her bosom heaved and knocked the clock off the mantelpiece. Well, that's the fun bit over (in a column to the right of me Amazon says to make this review fun, so I hoped you liked to my bit of action and fun). As for the 1/350 scale HMS Astute model that I've just bought, it appears to be very accurate in its outline, and nicely marked with some nice details like the little blades/vanes in the pump-jet shroud/fairing. It arrived in good time, well packaged and in good nick. Oh, and despite the lovely lady having ruined Darcy's clock with her over-enthusiastic bosom, they were married and lived very happily and had 72 children . . . I've just realised the making the review fun instruction was supposed to be for video reviews; that won't make me remove my nice little romantic story however.

The model is accurate and the level of detail is great.

However the base could be made to look like a sand bank... just like the one it ran aground on!

Superb model of the latest Royal Navy Fleet Submarine 27 Jan 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Contrary to the previous reviewer, my model arrived absolutely intact. Packaging was immaculate and, as a matter of fact, the degree of protection so high that it took quite some time to extrct the model from its wrappings: be very careful when unpacking the ship! Masts on the fin (periscopes, snort ducts, communications mast, etc.), bow and starn planes, and the propulsor shroud with its towed array ducts are quite delicate and may be damaged easily.

The model itself is perfect and, at a glance, appears to be an expertly assembled kit manufactured by Hobby Boss. Although I do not believe this to be the case (see my remarks on the outer torpedo doors below), the details of the model from Model Rectifier Corporation correspond perfectly to the features of the Astute seen either on the photographs or the published drawings of the submarine. The same goes for the ship's colour scheme (very dark, almost black gray) and hull/fin markings: the decals fit contours of the hull and blend with it extremely well, without the silvery hue surrounding sloppily applied decals seen on cheap models. The details of the boat's hull and casing (weather deck) such as sensors, life-line tracks, hatches, etc.) are engraved very crisply and match positions and shapes of those elements in the real ship. The engraving of the outer torpedo tube doors is clear and their position clearly visible. As in the real ship, the doors are flush with the surrounding hull. In the Hobby Boss kit the tubes are represented by shallow oblong depressions where the outer doors are located: as moulded, the pits represent the outer doors neither in their closed position (flush with the hull) nor open in preparation for the ejection of the torpedo (the tube would be visible as a crisp opening in the hull).

The only detraction from the perfect nature of the model is the VERY faintly visible seam where the upper and the lower halves of the hull join each other. However, this is an almost invisible blemish, and in a mass produced model sold at an incredibly low price, it would be difficult to demand from the manufacturer to perform perfectly the rather time consuming filling then sanding of the seam (I have seen professionally built exhibition models with similar faults). Adding some ballast inside the hull to improve the heft of the boat would enhance the tactile pleasure of handling the model. But, in the end, these are very minor issues.

Altogether, for those who build surface warship models but hardly ever touch a submarine, the 1/350 Astute is a ittle gem adding a piccant twist of the unusual to the already existing model collection. For those who want to have an excellent, highly detailed model of a modern British "hunter-killer" nucler submarine that is large enough to be noticed, this is a perfect choice (a protective glass/plexiglass case is recommended and the original base can be improved by constructing a wooden one). Those who look for a toy-submarine to be offered as a gift to a child should, however, look elsewhere: this IS a model, a very good one indeed, and ansolutely NOT a toy! If, on the other hand, you look for an ideal gift for a naval afficionado, the 1/350 model of HMS Astute ought to be in the forefront of your options.

A post scriptum to the review: the reason for one star in the "durability" assessment should be quite obvious. This is a MODEL which, like all good models, is quite fragile and must be handled with care. Treated as a toy, the durability of this and, for that matter, any other high quality model is ZERO!

Beware it may arrive broken 1 May 2013
By B. Morley - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I have bought three easy model submarines together in one purchase from another retailer.

Two of the three models came broken, one without fins at the rear. This last one had been obviously been broken at the plant and would not have been visible to the retailer, yet they put it into the box anyway.

A cheap model that is very fragile and made out of poor quality materiel. Based on my experience I would not buy another. At best you could say the quality control at the factory is poor, at worse they have little integrity selling defective products intentionally.
