I was beginning to think I would never get to this point, but I'm almost there. I'm really pleased how both of these are turning out. I have everyone here to thank and a special thanks to four in particular. (You know who you are cause I'll already told ya)

I have to confess that eventhough I began building in 1974, it's been sporadic at best. However, in the past year I've been able to fully get back into the hobby and all of you here at Armorama has made getting my feet wet (no pun intended) a very happy experience.

Thanks everyone

Here they are

The U-Boat CT remains to be finished as well as the Gato's armaments have just been set in place to get an idea what it would look like. Then a quick weathering and they'll be finished.







Again everyone, thanks for making it fun.

Very nice job!!!

I've always loved the lines on the Gato class boats, and your's certainly is visually stunning.

Thank you all,

I truly appreciate the kind words.


Makes me want to build something else....well, finish the others still waiting.
