    Incredible

    Wow again. I am truly looking forward to the finished look. Who is going to sell it, I will be the first to purchase.

    Periscopes would be fixed.
    But the snorkel is movable together with cylinder machanism.
    Uhmm retractable periscope is nice idea Chris. I think to add in color version. Have to make holes from the conn tower through hull.
    Thanks for your creative question :)

    Now, even I must say like an outsider... "Did you make that out of paper?!"

    --Just being curious... Kooklik, can you do an estimate of how many pages the model would have?

    I have not managed all parts fit to pages yet. The model size is large but not so much parts number. May be 10-15 pages of A4.

    Not really, for the quality of the model that is not that many.

    I am completely blown away by this whole thread. Every image raises the bar higher. After this and the POTW helicopter thread, I feel like hanging it up and finding a different hobby. Or at least it makes me see what kind of magic can be accomplished with paper, talent and patience. This is truly inspirational stuff.

    Add me to your list of people who will be buying this model. WOW!
