Thanks for the positives reactions. Mark said it already, i will soon send Mark the build review of this beautiful little kit, and i will post my progress of the paint and wheater job here on Model Shipwrights. Its my first naval subject as an AFV Modeler in general, but it will definitely not be the last. I have also an interest in WO2 submarines.

Cheers, Manuel

I am building this kit and have just two things to add. The forward coaming (shield) is held in place by a large tab on the front edge. I added two small tabs to the lower corners of this part and to the sides of the torpedo body. This gives better support and is truer to the original. Secondly, two parts used for the control cable runs are extremely small and hard to drill out. I would suggest replacing them with small diameter tubing. This not meant as criticism but to help anyone else building this otherwise fine kit.
