I think Bluejacket made a small German WWI U-boat maybe 10 years ago.

These are 1/72 vacu-form kits w/ resin detail parts.WWI vessels that he carries(that I'm
aware of) are 2 U-boats (U-9 and U-35),a US sub (S-class) and a US "Flush deck" Destroyer
(USS Ward).There may be others.

Looks like I've found another place to send what little surplus cash I have.I found a web site for a company called Fine Art Models that sells assembled models of ships of various kinds, including one of the Emden. However, the asking price (about the same as for a late-model used car) puts it completely out of my reach. I'd rather have the satisfaction of building my own anyway.

Have you ever seen one of these completed? Every one who I've ever talked to who had one of these kits tried to offload them to other suck .... gullib .... er, um, 'unsuspecting' people. To call them 'craftsman kits' may be generous.
Maybe so,but still...
I guess it's like that quart of milk that you know has gone sour,but you still
feel compelled to smell it before you pour it out.
Who knows?I may be able to "pull a rabbit out of my hat" and do justice to
the U-35 and the memory of Kapitanleutnant de la Periere!
Wish me luck in any case.If you like,I'll keep you posted on my construction
of the U-35.
