Hi all here's one I've been on a little while. working on the torpedo room and the batteries.
It must be obvious to those in the know I know nothing about subs.
That said I am enjoying the build.

Apparently those lucky ducks in the type XXIs didn't have to sleep over the torpedoes as did their comrades aboard the type VIIs!

Ken,

whether or not you know anything about those subs, you are doing an nice job! Steady and solid progress, the interior is coming along nicely!

Cheers,
Jan

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.

Looks really good, man. I looked at building a sub but they never seem that interesting a build. This looks like it would make it a lot more fun!

Hi all well I'm calling this finished 








I steered clear of them for the same reason but the interior does add more interest, go for it it's a good kit.
