Cold War Torpedo Boats from the Baltic in 1/400

This is why I like so much working in paper. I know it is not the same as other media for curved surfaces (or worst, spheres). I did this models some time ago, and may be not totally finished but here you are.
This P-6 came from an out-of-print model by Kranich. The print includes a large torpedo boat Shershen (in progress), a P-6 and, an East Germany landing craft in 1:200.

The T-38 came in the JSC-No.69 with the destroyer Smaland and the Hajen and Nordkaparen submarines. The motor torpedo boat from 1952 is currently at the Naval Museum of Karlskrona in Sweden.

The TD-200 bis is a modification of the polish sub chaser ¦miały, a MO-D-3 of Soviet origin, from Kartonowa Flota in 1:300. It was modified using warboats.org as the main reference. There is very little information on this torpedo boat, for the others at least some one can rely on Jane’s!

The trio here presented have very limited photoetched details and no rigging, flags or railing. I hope you like them.

Thank you Tim:
Resizing is one of the best things about paper modeling.
Happy modeling,
Pablo

I like your display of the three boats. The lack of PE detail, rigging & such doesn't detract from them at all. imho I think that, in the desire to be accurate, we sometimes overdetail a model and it ends up a cluttered mess. I think you have struck a good balance here.

This is the Shershen that came with the P-6, nominally at 1:200 by Kranich. So I reduced 50% but I noticed that it looked too big. So I checked various sources ranging from 34 to 40 meters. I stayed with the 34m reported by more recent quotes (the boat served with several non aligned states). As I mentioned before resizing is not a problem in paper! I also printed a very faded copy in light gray card sock.

These are other views, a little fuzzy.
Next time I will do it with better light.
