The G-5 was a Soviet motor torpedo boat built before and during World War II. Approximately 300 were built, of which 73 were lost during the war. Four were exported to the Spanish Republican Navy during the Spanish Civil War and others were transferred to North Korea after the war. Three were captured by the Finns, but only two were used before all three had to be returned to the Soviets after the Moscow Armistice in 1944.

This is a big kit - 545.3mm in length and 97.9mm at the beam. Includes photo-etched propellers and grilles. 

I personally would not have liked to be on this boat when launching a torpedo. Here is a Soviet era video of the real thing in action:
