    *points to model in thread*

    "Voila!"

    Kooklik... I wonder if this is hindsight but ... would it have been a good idea to build this with grey carstock?

    Dear Frank
    I would be so impressed if the retired WWII sub or destroyer crews watch my thread. I always respect for their experience and courage. I have never been close to the real U-Boats. But more than visiting real u-boats , writing to the retired crews is most thing that I dream to do. I would be glad if u can tell me how to contact to them.
    Best Regards

    WOW! I love this build!

    I've always loved papermodels, the clever ways people make a flat sheet of paper or card into the most amazing shapes to form a model is amazing.

    Until recently I loved Sci-fi models but only Sci-fi models. My mind was closed to anything else and any non Sci-fi model didn't interest me in the slightest.

    However, this thread has totally converted me! I love this model and totally admire the time and patience that has been spent on it. Kooklik, you've done a fantastic job here, keep it.

    I hope this model gets the time and patience it deserves by us all when we get to build it for ourselves. I'm curious, you've put alot into this. Is this going to be a free download model or a model to buy?

    WELL DONE!

    Hi
    re 333 U-Boat Original Pictures
    Clicking on the drawings only brings up the fleabay site?
    not an enlargement.
    for more sub info there are 2 sites worth looking at as well, I'm a member of both SubPirates.com - Index page & The SubCommittee both have a large reference sections.
