Krim & Kuban Schilds

Article about: I have been offered these two, but not happy with either. No pics of backing supplied (did ask). The Krim shore outline looks wrong and the KRIM too. Can anyone confirm my suspicions please?

    Hi Al,

    As indicated by JB, the Krim Shield is a fake and is based on the 3.1 Deumer design. The Kuban Shield is also bad being based on the type 5.5 by an unknown maker and a fake that's been around a long time.

    Regards, Ned.

    Ned has it right. Bad Krim and Kuban. The obvious missed coast line on the Krim stands out like a soar thumb.
