Just started to sculpt the water here, using Magic-Sculpt.

Hopefully it will be finished on time.

So your going to get a little salt in your veins, I always thought you were a land lover. What at one time did you use to be a bubble head, or do you just like the subject.

That looks great so far Dave!!! I'm having trouble finding time to finish my sub as well, so don't feel bad. I can't wait to see this one finished.

Thanks guys....
No Kerry.... never was a bubblehead..... just a snipe on birdfarms. But I did spend a day aboard a fast attack once when we were anchored out many moons ago. (believe it of not, it was an official duty call, bringing some spare parts they needed that we had aboard our ship) In return for the parts, they gave us the grand tour, and fed us. (so I got to go to a few places average folks didn't see.... like the engineering areas)

Alan, the kit comes with a guy sticking out of the conning tower, so yep.... he's all set to fit in...... wish I wouldn't have place the scope yet, hopefully I'll get the water done without snapping it off...... ( been knocked a few times already, and would make this suggestion to anyone else that's going to build this kit.)

Nope... Rob, not a tank, although it is a tubeular vessel, it that counts...... :-)

The fun part of a campaign, at least for me, is building something I would not normally build..... ok except for truck softskin campiagns...... :-) :-) :-)

Well, water added, got a little more painting to do, then the gloss coats to bring it up to looking more wet.
And Yep...... never should have installed the scope yet....
it went flying......... so it's now sitting to one side until the very end.



Just two fast shots, on the work bench.
God willing, and the creek don't rise, I hopefully will get this finished over my days off.
