K-461 Volk (russian submarine diorama)

Posted by MixvsMinimax on 09 Nov 2019, 23:19

ahoi,

I am not only building dinosaurs, but also other stuff. I recently finished the construction of a 3d-model of the aft of K-461 in 1/72 for printing, because I want to build a diorama (28 x 20 x 8,5cm) which shows this scene (which is probably known):

Image

I also have nearly finished both of the figures. But I really don't know where this guy "at" water is standing on (right click for bigger pic). Under the rudder You can see something like a minibouy(?). So may be he stands in a boat or at a minibuoy-raft? (this kind of buoy, which Pam used in Baywatch?) I don't think, that he stands on one of the big buoys, but those are russsians.
Does anybody of You has any idea?
And does someone has maybe pics of those big buoys?

Here the 3d-model:

Hi.

I think that you are right and he is actually standing on the hull and the effect is optical.

The bouys may well be ‘buffs’ used to protect the sides of the vessel from bumps and knocks.

Best wishes,

Thanks for reply. But if You compare it to the 3d-drawing, he can ´t stand on the hull. In the pic of the 3d-model the yellow coloured area is under water. He stands too far from the waterline, to stay dry.

Hi.

If you follow the waterline from the right, and assuming the submarine is level ( it would be weird if it was not) then the water line is below the guy just.

The bouys point of contact with the water seem to substantiate this and his proportions suggest that his feet are only just out of view.

There is no space fir any float and the pole would suggest a slippery task!

Best wishes,

If he´s Standing on the hull he has good grip, it´s virtually horizontal at that Point

Hi Paul.

I think, unless it’s optical, that your chap is lower in the water by the look of the back hatch.

However, it’s only a superstation.

Good luck with the diorama.

Best wishes,

Chris

Chiming in I think your water line on the 3D model is perhaps a bit high. But regardless, following it back I can see that the left figure would be unable to be on the hull which would be vertical.
Looking at it a different way, when I am out canoeing and want to make landfall I will often offer my paddle to someone on land to pull me in the last bit to shore. So perhaps that is what the proffered stick is about?

He could be Standing on either;
A bouy that has gone deeper due to his weight
or the wire securing the buoys..certainly not on the hull, it´s way too steep.

Annoying is not knowing how he´s doing it.

I guess he changed the bulb.

And yes, it must be a tricky thing, indicated by the helping broom.

The question is also, what could it be, which is probably easy avaiable in a submarine base. Just a piece of timber on a package of life vests?
