Hi all, I know I already have lots on the go but what can I say, I'm a glutton for punishment. 

This looks to be a really nice kit and I'm looking forward to the challenge

I have one of these.  Mine is planned to get a modified sail with a couple of V-2s (or derivatives thereof) in it. ;)

Perhaps displayed in a diorama with the studied towed launch canisters for V-2s?

I built this kit in the past. Very good and didactic. I would recommend you to use box illustration for painting reference. :smiley: :smiley:

Without the conning tower, this wouldn't look out of place as a sci-fi space cruiser.  :icon_vader:

Here is another update, it must be obvious by now I know nothing about subs but I must say it looks like a well detailed kit.

So interesting seeing interior compartments.  To a non submariner it seems correct.  Detail finishing you done adds a lot for visual exploring. :smiley:

Hi all nearly done just the rear stabilizers and props then get my head round the proper weathering of a sub (Not sure how to do algae will have to do some googling)







I'm thinking of going back to my scratch building, maybe going back to what I know will boost my kit builds.

That is truly looking superb.  You are definitely doing the kit proper justice.
