    I saw your paint works. They were wheatering added,very nice looking. I'm not sure if i can do as well as you. Hope to learn some painting technics from you when coloring work starts.

    That snorkel detail was just too much to believe! You're putting plastic models to shame. ;) I continue to be impressed by this model every time I check this thread. I will definitely be on the waiting list for this one. :)

    Thanks. :D

    Since you have already tackled the hard part. The 2D portion should only be icing on an already tasty cake.

    Thanks for your suggestion ,Stev.
    After I complete white modeling and debug some points. I may need volunteers for coloring.

    Hi to all
    I did a big mistake in design. There was a crash of parts when cylinder moved. I did not check movement of each part well. I found when trying assembly. So I corrected design to avoid crash. See in attached figures.
    And changed float ball shape from tube to be sphere.

    Nice work on the mechanism! (Does it really moves?!) Kooklik, how are you going to design the sphere shape? It looks quite small to me.

    Nezard I try to make it really movable. For sphere I'll use a ball at the needle tip. Its size is closed to the real one in 1/72 scale.

    I don't strict to purely paper. There's no rules. If it looks beautiful apply more any ideas. :grin:

    I can only imagine what it felt like when that ball valve slammed shut from a high wave and those huge diesels tried to suck the sir out of the boat. Painful!
