Ready for sanding and some putty/filler,

Added some detail to the inside of the bridge .......welds seam ,and covered the Schnörkel with anti radar rubber (tarnmatte) wil replace the Naxos radar detector on top of the Schnörkel

Made a new periscope way better than the kit version.

Looking really good Maarten, plus it's a decent enough scale where adding the extra detail is worth it cause you can see it. Very nice so far.

Seeing it next to the bottle of tamiya extra thin really gives a good idea of how big it is, it's massive!
Looking good.

This definitely deserves a dry dock scene. I hadn't picked up that you were building two. The figures look excellent so far.

Pre shaded ,
After it was done i noticed that there was no need to for complete shading because the bottom part wil be dark grey,and that wil be post shaded.

What are we looking at in the last shot Maarten? Is that a torpedo emerging from the tube?
An above and below the surface diorama maybe?

Looking good Maarten :)

I wonder who will be the first with the cojones to cut down one of the hulls to make it a waterline kit? Or submerge it in resin to replicate water! :whistle:

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Man, that looks freakin awesome! Even without the weathering, the shading etc looks spot on, almost like you could drop it in the water and off it would go...
I can only imagine how good it will look after you've worked your magic on it....
