Mikr Mir 1/35 CSS Hunley – In Box Review

This kit comes from the Ukraine and I ordered it via eBay for around $40. It arrived in about a month. After looking at it, I went and ordered another as I intend to build this for my Charleston SC son-in-law who is a Civil War buff, and will need one for myself!

It is a relatively simple kit consisting of 29 grey styrene, 18 clear, and 25 photo-etch parts. Instructions indicate to drill holes for most of the clear parts (16 small portholes) but there is no indication of drill size. Trial and error on some scrap plastic will be in order here!

An interesting addition to the kit!

The completed model will be nearly 20” long when finished, including the spar torpedo and should make an impressive display. Now to go visit the actual Hunley and get some photos!
