    Hi to all

    Rail for 3.7 cm flak platform. I spent whole day to complete it.
    In this step , I improved wires holding jig. It could help me to hold all wires at their correct positions.

    Regards

    Magnificent!!! I wonder if I can make those railings out of paper...

    And Kooklik, just asking I noticed there is a gap between the hull and the superstructure, is that intentional?

    Hmmm interesting idea to make a card jib for wirework... i'm surprised we dont see this on purchased printed models. From the kits I have it's just ... #x#cm tall wires, #x#cm long wires and away you go.

    Are your pulling design/plan/build concepts from some examples or just thinking this up as you go along?

    Again... this thread gets my attention everytime [​IMG]

    No, it's a design bug.

    Thanks for giving comments and questions.
    Wire forming Jig concept , I created from this mockup build. I couldn't hold and assemble parts without jig. It's impossible for me to hold and glue in the same time. Design/plan then build is the good way to debug the kit. While i build I can see problems from my design. Collect problems and debug when making instruction.

    Best Regards

    Hi Yaniv
    Long time, your c-47 is parking in the hanger. I wait for being your co-pilot.

    Hello Kooklik, thanks a lot for sharing such a great project. I'm new to the thread and was completely possessed by it. As a big fan of U-boats just can't wait until your release. Write me down as a future customer should you sell the kit!

    Keep up the great work.

    Hi Gaston
    Thanks for interesting in my model. I'm very glad to hear that a big u-boat fan want to build my boat. Hope we can share more boats' details or histories of u-boats.

    Best Regards

    picture attachment help

    Any chance the picture attachments can be figured out on this design and build project. This is my favorite all time build and I would like to see it again and again and again.

    I can't wait to see more of this build and eventually build it myself.

    choo-choo me too. It is happening all over the place trains, flags & pix of someones office? Can't wait til all these problems are fixed.

    There seem to be far less posts since the move????

    Hello Kooklik - missing your build/design progress :(
    I swore I'd never build a sub, but I definitely want to build this one (in white?).

    Just think some poor sole on the train/car/plane side is looking for the pics & getting a U Boat.
