Hi all,

My VIIC is ready for test diving! The only things I need to do now are decals and weathering, which I will do if the sub is waterproof

Here are some pics, hope you like what you see....



















More pics, including pics of the built etc, can be found here:

Thanks for looking,
Martin

Hey,

I've been thinking about a diorama.....cutting the boat to the waterline etc.....but I preffered to see the whole boat and also I was affraid the water wouldn't turn out well....I'm not so good in that sort of things

In the future I do want to built a dio with ships though!

Heeeyyyyyyy Martin!

Oh yeah, that preshading really comes through and looks nice in these shots! Yep...I think I'll be trying this out as well. So are you going to use the washes you were telling me about too?

She looks awesome Lil' Bro!

How'd the presentation go?

Yeah think I'm gonna apply the first wash after I've posted this reply

Presentation went very well. You know I'm not that good in "reading" the information from the sheets etc, but one of the teachers was kind enough to say that we didn't made enough progress till now....after I was finished anwsering this my teacher couldn't come up with a decent English phrase anymore and my English teacher who was giving us a mark for our English had a real big smile on his face :-)

So guess that went pretty well :-)

Thanks for the comments all! Time for some weathering now

....................... wow, what a good looking sub!

I like your preshade maby if I had money I should try this kit once.
One thing make the name of the ship on the standart.
Then know people what kind of sub it is.

You don't seriously think I will forget eh mate? :-)

The name on the standart is also a decal....and these pics are the sub without the decals.....

Decals are on the sub by now, as well as weathering. Almost done....

Well actually yes :-) :-):-)

It is a lot better is you make the name all by yourself, why? hear I ask you Because it is more convinced that it is a large project and it is a lot nicer. (just don't know the specific word)

Btw are you really make a test dive? your nuts you know?
