Better and Better

That's just an understatement of the work you have done.
You're getting there ... just a bit more to finish ... and we will be astounded!

I said it before , the attention to detail is superb.

Thanks

Hi my friends, thank you all for your comments, here another small update on the latest work on the boat

The cammett mines are weathered and finished

The rear ammo locker received some detail on its doors as the locking mechanism made with
Plastic rod and PE leftovers, the same was done to the side lockers




For the flak 42 I used the wood boxes from the afv set for the bofors and m42

The boxes are sanded smooth and the rope handles glued in place


Here is the original look and the finished one

The ammo from the bofors set is very similar to the ammo for the flak 42, so I used the bofors ammo to fill the case and then placed one original clip on top so I don’t have to make castings
Of the flak 42 ammo to fill the crate.

Here a comparison of the flak 42 clip from italery vs the bofors clip from afv

The flak 42 ammo in the rear ammo locker

The demijohns bases are installed





The throttle pedestal is finished

The kalotte is finished with the installation of the wind shields


The wheelhouse room is also finished

The radio, wall clock and flare gun holster are glued in place

The map room got some details, the ruler and compass are made from PE pieces




A couple of photos of the kalotte with all the sections to check that all fits ok



The rails plastic chain is removed and the holes for the replacement chain are drilled



Working on figure painting and the base for the boat is almost done. Thanks for watching

HI mi friends, here with the last update before presenting the finished model. The last details to the ship before its first mission. So here we go one last time…

The crew from Azimuth is great, excellent details; I used a couple of the figures from italery also
Here the flesh detail is painted followed by the uniforms.



I modified a little this figure from the italery set to be the driver


A figure from dragons communication set is used in the map room

The side markers lights are replaced with new ones made from styrene, a vacuum copy was made, then a piece of styrene is cut in half and the new glass is cut to shape and glued, two Styrene disks serve as bottom and top for the new lamps. A small piece of wire is used for the handle detail on top of the Edward PH part



The new side marker lamp painted and in place, sooo much better than the original

The steel angular between the kalotte and the front deck is made with angular styrene of 1.2mm

Ready to install

It looks like this now


Torpedoes are glued in place and the PH straps painted and installed

The smoke generators in place

The anchor in its new location as seen on the real boat, why there is a mystery for me, I think
It is because it is so little used so it doesn’t stand on the way on the front deck

The PH roof supports from the Edward set are installed; this detail is missing on the kits parts

The side railings are placed and wired


The wire tensors for the antenna cables are made from cooper wire and a piece of brass tube Painted black

The tensors and the antenna cable installed

The finished front gun

The ammo storage for the dual flak

The side handle and the strange box on the boats side are installed

The finished flak 42


The base for the boat in made of plastic panel inch in dia. A cut out of the boat hull was made
The water is made with spackling compound and wire screen the base is 48”long by 12” wide

The wire mesh used to form the water spray is covered with spackling paste

It’s getting there, almost finished


Well this is it, it is already finished, I’m working on the final photos of the complete model on the base, coming soon!
Thanks!
Abdin
