How on earth did you manage to cut out that tiny hand wheel. Simply stunning work Kooklik !!
Thanks to Mark.
More updated. I just finished shield plate.
I would really like to build this, but your skill would make mine look like a sub that was depth charged and crushed by sinking too deep!
I want to build it anyway!
Your skills of design and build is awesome!!!! Keep it up.
Wonderful work. It is amazing what you have acomplished so far. The level of detail & workmanship is outstanding.
I repeat watching some scenes from "DAS BOOT". The film inspired me to build this. The scene "Servive from Dept Charge" is the most I repeat.
Hi to all
Finished 3.7 cm Flak unit. One of hard section. Spent 2 days for assembly.
really nice work!
Full hull view with showcase lighting.
Next section AA 2.0 cm. The smallest parts of this kit. Just finished pattern detailing. ready to be unrolled.
Dear Lord...just too bloody nice to be real, and in all likelyhood well beyond my modest abilities to build.
Agreed kooklik, that scene was certainly memorable. Courageous, or suicidal, your guess, but it certainly left an impression in my mind. I'm guessing the captain knew what the sub was capable of.
Brilliant movie. Brilliant model. Padre said what I feel.
U-boat crews watched their depth gauge after blowing compress air to saddle tanks. Watching the guage's hand pointing to dead or alive......
When i get a hard point with kit designing. I take relax by watching this film.
Hi to there
I started first 2.0 cm AA Guns unit. Smaller parts but less part quantity than 3.7 cm.
Started from gun base
Next is barrels. Barrels are too small for making by paper rolling. So I selected copper wire (same size as rails) for gun barrels.
And guns body and recoils cylinders.
Ready to mount with gun base
Place on deck
Nice, I have some success with using cigarette rolling paper for very small cylinders, but wire is what I mostly use as well. The gun base is very impressive. How did you do the bolt heads?
For bolts i used art knife

Damn...they can't be much bigger than a millimetre in diameter, and you managed that with a knife? My hat is off to you and I stand in utter awe and amazement. jawdrop
That gun is truly spectacular! It's a stunning build all on it's own, let alone the ship itself!
I have been in awe since the beginning of this ship and you just never cease to amaze me, Kooklik!
Simply stupendous work!:thumb:
This build and design continues to amaze! And congrats on the POTW!
The gun is crazy! I think I will panic if I saw such part inside kit but you did it perfectly!
Hi Kooklik, Congrats on making POTW. Well deserved indeed.
Is this the first time a part finished model has made POTW ?
