    Absolutely superb! This is the best sub I have seen bar none. Paper or otherwise. You should look into finding a naval museum, and seeing if they will show it.

    Hi Kooklik,

    This is quite an outstanding model. I wouldn't have believed you'd get so much detail in paper.

    In a way I didn't really want this design/build to end... every single time I came back for another look, you had outdone yourself again and again...

    With my ever growing list of models to build, I doubt I could ever find the time or room for this one, but I don't think I'll let that stop me from buying a copy when it becomes available, this is simply one of those "must have" kind of items.

    Congratulations on all your excellent work so far, I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next.

    Do you have any plans for a new model after this one is all finished and done with?

    I'm very thanks for all kind words those helped me alot to create this beautiful thing. After release this. I still intend to do ship model again. Depend on how much data I can find. But the famous ship like Titanic would have a lot of data for me to do.

    Best Regards

    Thanks kooklik for devoting so much of your time and energy for a superlative result!

    Even uncolored, it still looks quite real.:thumb:
