Saddle tanks / ballast tanks are done.
Wasn't really sure how this would work and look , it was difficult to make ( bending plastic sheet, putty and and a bit of sanding.)
But turned out real good ...which was nice.

Hull and deck primed ,was a smooth build,no imperfections that needed attention ,
Now i can add the smaller details,
Starting to look like a Kriegsmarine boat .
