    u-46?

    Olli,

    Is your model based upon U-46, the laughing swordfish?

    Very nice details of tower and saddle tanks and just good looking in general, especially at that scale.

    My brother is a former US Naval destroyer officer. . .your boat would be a perfect X-Mas gift to "sink" the plastic model he has on the shelf. ;-)

    That is such a cool little model, Olli! I really want to build that, but I'll be using styrene strip for the handrails and some scraps for the cannon. :thumb:

    Very nice, it's almost completed isn't it? Also, can you get some instructions for that gun?

    Nice build. Thank you for designing this and well done.

    Are you thinking of anymore in the same scale.

    This design is very nice indeed. The look of the finished model on the display base is excellent, especially considering the scale. Congratulations on a very nice model!

    Wow! I designed german submarine too, the type VIIc in 1:300 and same as you in the "water-line" design. I want it to publisch, and then i look to this forum and you are faster...
    But your model is very nice! Better than my version.
