Red October Submarine
from "The Hunt for Red October" (1990)
About the Design
As described by Tom Clancy in his Reagan-era best seller, the Red October was a traditional Typhoon-class submarine equipped with a radical magnetic impeller water jet propulsion system that allowed it to travel virtually silently. Such a stealth ability would make such a submarine the ultimate weapon in the event of a nuclear exchange between the world's superpowers.
About the Kit
In fact, Revell's "Red October" was nothing more than a repackaged Typoon-class submarine kit. They didn't even bother to include the bow and rear vents for the impeller propulsion system shown in great detail in the Paramount movie.
This model was built from an original issue.
