Ye at 39inch long and 10inch beam she a big and heavy model. It was a build I had knocking around in my head for at least 10 urs but got pushed back each time by a Coastal Forces craft of one sort or another. So 2012 I decided to purchase a grp hull and plan and go for it!! The plan can in :32/35 scale so I just had it enlarged to :24 scale to suit the lenght of the hull.
The wheel house is composite plastic card using 1mm to bulid the basic shell then clad in 20thou V groove plastic card to give the panel effect! All the fittings I made one master the cast the rest!
As for the paint job, all colours are from White Ensign Models here in the UK! They are for Norwigen waters with a little license on the scheme!!!
Any enought of mine. I do like yours and the paint work. Looks good when do you think it will be finished?? I also have the same book not as though I can read German, I have also many photos I have found on the net which I will post on here when I get home to my pc!!
