2) Any submarine related subjects are welcome wither sea or air, any era. Anything form Bushnell’s Turtle to the Virginia. From the earliest air search and surface search to modern anti-sub assets.

4) Any amount of AM, PE, scratchbuilding or number of entries you desire.

I have the urge to build a Resurgam, but not this kit.  Mikro-Mir kind of pooched their research, and the kit is snack-sized.  I want to scale up to 1/72 and it is a simple shape so... and here I go again.  I have a disease I tell you.  Stick out tongue

https://flic.kr/p/Jr6ASL] [/url]Resurgam-01 by N.T. Izumi, on Flickr

Despite its fantastical shape, the Resurgam was real and did put to sea.  But she had a very, very short career and never engaged an enemy vessel.

Well since Gold hammer helped me figure out how to post pix, I guess the next logical step is to get involved in a group build. Sign me up for a 1/350 Hobby boss Typhoon as well. That kit is way more accurate than the old Dragon one I have awaiting decals. Man I can't believe I'm doing this.

Thanks GH, if I an catch her without getting clawed and keep the wife from doing the same for little painted puddy prints, should make it more interesting than my obligatory fingerprint. This is gonna be fun. Thanks Modelcrazy for hosting.

For those with Smithsonian Channel, they are starting a new program on July 17th @ 9:00 PM (eastern).  Called "Hell Below" it is on subs.  Looks to start in the Atlantic on the trailer I've seen up to now.  Just in time for us here.

modelcrazy, please add me with this old Renwal Products Inc. 1:200th Thomas Jefferson.

Backstory on this: I found this while we were cleaning out my grandmothers house after her passing. My father remembers getting it when he was in his late teens, maybe very early 20s. He went on to serve 4 years in the Navy, some of which he was on the USS James Monroe (same class as this sub)in the early 70's. He recalls building the Renwal kit of the Monroe. My intention is to build this and present it to him when complete!

BTW There's a new badge added to the badge seletion. A Gato, or what looks like a Gato/Balo except for the conning tower, in a mine field.
