    1/35 Type IIB U-boat early 1943 configuration.

    I don't really get any satisfaction from building kits out of the box,its more fun to make your own

    Water line model of a German U-boot this model was used in the Black sea against the Russians.

    Deck is custom made for me with a CNC machine ,
    The hatch (2x) and the UZO (the stand with the binoculars) is 3 d printed by Shapeways
    Grating on the bridge is bought on Aliexpress.

    All the rest is Scratch Build with various thicknesses of plastic sheet ,rods,strips and some milliput .
    When all the scratching is done ,the complete model will be covered with Resin rivets printed on decal sheet .

    WOW, that’s a beauty!!! I love how you are using several different sources to tweak the final product. The decking is superb — I take it that’s thee CNC work?

    Also, that’s one sexy sanding stick!
    If you can't be a good example, be a horrible warning

    That's so impressive looking, and really makes the build so superior. That'll make sub fanatics drool!!! I have to admit...I wouldn't have thought of using that technology. Does he do a lot professionally, or is it more hobby for him?

    HA...the one's I am currently using are bubblegum pink! Bought at a department store we have her called Target, and a tenth the price as a hobby shops' version from model companies. I'm always trying to think out of the box with supplies.... very rarely do I buy hobby shop versions of tools.

    That’s outstanding work, there. Is that aftermarket cabling, or something you rigged up yourself?
