G'day folks, been a loooong time since I posted anything. Been very busy with real life stuff, but found some time recently to start on something small to get back in the game.

The box...got this online for about $5 , bargain !



Construction was relatively simple. The. PE did test me though, pretty happy with how it looks though, specially the railing around the conning tower.







Some nice detail



Hope to get some primer on her today, looking forward to weathering and rust streaking.

Thanks for looking.

That's a nice looking kit the PE parts really make it look sharp were they included with the kit or bought separately.

Thanks Arohk, PE was included in the kit.

Got it primed ( no pic ) and first coat of colour :)





Will have to wait to tomorrow to get the light grey on the upper hull.

Thanks for looking :)

Looking good!
You should give her the honour of rigging her. It's pretty easy to do.
Cheers,
Guido

Thanks Tailor ! Trying to find something suitable for the rigging. I did try some fine fishing line but it looked rubbish..

I've seen EZLine on you tube, looks like the stuff to use, but can't find any retailers ins Australia that sell it

What do you use ? Any suggestions welcome.

Got first in open ships at WASMEX our local annual show ! Was realy happy with the result considering the other entries, my little sub looked pretty underwhelming sitting along side some of the others. Totally was not expecting to win anything ;D
