Adrian,

Your bio on this site suggests that you a Renaissance man for sure. You have a background in engineering, your taste in music, your ability to see ahead (chess), your obvious eye for detail would indicate that you are a gentleman in the classic sense of the word.

Your modeling is, as others have said, just outstandingly fabulous.

Which P-38 in 1/48 scale are you working on and will we get to see a work in progress?

Here are a couple of short pieces I take with me in my tablet to the gym most days of the week to drown out the stuff they have coming out of the speakers. Maybe you'll enjoy them also:

Thanks!! 1943Mike!!...Yes!! the short pieces of music are good enough to get peace and to go to another world, Thanks you for share in this forum and with me.

My F4U in 1/32 around in one month, I will post it, thanks for ask me!! and of course, my next move is to move one pieces into another room... ( Lenguaje chess's ), Thanks you for your words!!, give me a good motivation...Good

Hi Tanker builder!!

 

Thanks for the suggestion of the thread to cut. 

Use the cyanoacrylate glue (super bonder) to join all the components.

and thanks for giving me the idea to contact them. I've just done it now and we're going to wait.

 Thanks for sharing your wife's story ...

Thanks again!! Tanker Builder

Adrian ;

 Where is the Museum this sub is in ? Can you communicate with them ? Contact their Director of Displays and show them the photos you have shown here . I'll bet you can get your sub into the Museum in a diorama ! Tanker - Builder

Adrian ;

 You can actually make a cable saw out of coarse fine thread or Woven Fly fishing line ( Fine ) . I tried this some years back when a friend teased me about cutting apart a ship at the engine room to show all the stuff inside !

 I tried a Hack saw on a scrap hull and was not pleased . My wife comes into the shop with a bleeding finger , She cut it on a thread .That's when the light of understanding went on .

 I acquired a ring saw that is used in the Stained Glass hobby ! problem solved . They use a diamond coated wire . I modified it to use " Spider Wire " fine fishing line .

 It cuts just like a band saw , only with a spinning wire .

This is truely an amazing museum quality project that you are creating.  I hope it will eventually find a home in one in the future.

 

Perhaps in the complex where the boat is at.

 

 

 

 

...I would be the happiest man of earth if have an opportunity to put it in the museum where the sub is at. Thanks you!!

 

   Bassically for now to the end, I only concentrate to keep homogeneo all the individual parts. This is a little hard because you need to concentrate in all the submarine like a one piece… and you need constantly ask you many question about the same things.
 
   For example, Now I'm working in the interior of the third section ( Diesel motor room ) to show all of it ...like a interior of forward torpedo room, and of course I will recreate few ribs but, but...I realize that there are a lot of ribs in my model in the torpedo room!!...and to keep coherent I  remove some of them ...in a few days a I will show us a new one torpedo rooms...with lilltle changes but coherent with the ribs of the third section....
 
   The point is, there are a lot of things depending of the ribs, and practically I need to remove almost all pieces of the interior...
 
   and believe me...most of the pieces that you see in my photographs, doesn't work at first time...
 
 
Thanks you!!!...we are in touch!

It really is somethng to see all three of those hull sections together.  Lovely work, and nice scavenging with your wife's plate.

 

   Yes Bil, My perception to see together is 'the sensation to something heavy", step by step my imagination begin to see some mystery all around this submarine...

 

   Mystery that can explain to me how was his last days in the ocean floor even when was arise and stay for a long time in the dark, solitary and cool nights...

 

   ...of course!!!...I meant not tried to find the true history...just to find some poetry that help me to understand the odyssey of the life on board this submarine...

Indeed, the life of a modeler is often in peril from even his adoring family. 

Never mind we must go on, the model is all  

Seriously though, very impressive work. Many thanks for sharing your vision and talent with us.
