No problem!  Let's just hope that "slow ship" isn't taking the coast near Yemen!

Sorry I've not got back to you sooner, BUT..... I'm back up from underwater now http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/sport/swimming-smiley-emoticon.gif

The past week or so I've had nothing but  http://www.sherv.net/cm/emo/angry/bang-head-on-desk.gif router,modem and ethernet cable trouble.       Doh emoticon (Hand gesture emoticons)

Everything's straightened out now but my kit has apparently been on a "slow ship from china"...

I'll be going thru some references in the next few days and I hope to see you again on my next uboot build.

Untill then,

The finished product certainly is magnificent.  A true work of craftmanship.  You've done her proud!

I will agree with you about giving it a gloss coating for a more "wet" appearance, but overall she's a beaut!

Gary

Thank you Gary. I really appreciate that.

Since the gloss coat would be easy I just said well, I could add that anytime but I'm happy with it as it is for now.

Between reading up on my next subject.......

        .....and getting things organised for our Model club meeting here in North Carolina.

                                                http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/office/busy-office-work-smiley-emoticon.gif

Going to have an attendance drawing for $50, a raffle and lots of good food brought in for everyone.

Thanks for your very positive comment.

I know you can do better than half as well and I'm sure the Bluenose will prove it.

 Ja, schließlich!
         Yes, finally!
     Get on board  http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/war/submarine.gif dive in.
 
This project was about 90% hand painted with various paints (as listed) on the first page.
I have it mounted in an upward angle suggesting surfacing. Heading home from a 6-7 month patrol.
The snorkel and various parts on the conn are easily movable but I forgot to take a picture of that.
I'm not sure that I like the emblem I placed on the base. :frantic:I might change it later.

Here's another angle....Coming up for a view http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/birds/bird-watching-smiley-emoticon.gif

 And yes, there are two sides to this.

A view from above.

And another view from above: wink:
The 37mm will swivel around http://th717.photobucket.com/albums/ww173/prestonjjrtr/Smileys%20Holidays/Halloween/th_bf-piratebullet.gif
The coating on the deck and conn has been worn down to the wood.
https://i.imgur.com/fnBbut9.png
 
Below, it's basically underway. Instead of placing the kit decal on foil, I photoshopped the decal flag and printed it on the kind of paper used as packing for new shoes or dress shirts. Worked well and a bit of future held the shape nicely.
The flag pole is a piece of wire and is removeable.
https://i.imgur.com/WnxBetC.png
 
Other side.
https://i.imgur.com/wRUnVCZ.png
 
 
Screening was added to the railings and radar. Lots of scratching here.
I did some serious weathering on the railings for the 6 months of surfacing/diving oxidation.

Algae deposits on the hullside..... (probably would have looked better with a gloss finish but...)

I made my own anchor after finding the original crunched beyond recognition. It even fit better.
Made my own attachments for the bowplane cables.
https://i.imgur.com/GxKaqrM.png
 
 
And here......... the original salt life.
https://i.imgur.com/K4L1r3Z.png
 
 
 
 
 
I've pictured it below in a manner to resemble an under water appearance.
 
                                               
Well it looks like I'm finally going to be able post this without all the aforesaid frustration.
                                                          https://karopka.ru/upload/main/smiles/5/wink.gif
Despite all the obstacles that kept stalling me, I still had a lot of fun working on this and learning new descriptive phraseshttp://www.millan.net/minimations/smileys/bokmal.gif
I'm very happy with this    http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/penguins/happy-feet-penguin-smiley-emoticon.gif and yes, I've got my headphones  on.http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/music/music-with-earphones-smiley-emoticon.gif

Hey Bob,

Thank you for your advice. That's what I usually do but, well - read on.

 I've gotten over my hissy-fit.

 When I first started this subject post, it came up with no way to edit it since the picture somehow covered the edit button which prevented me from deleting the picture so I could finish the post that was covered up by the picture blocking the edit button......confusing isn't it, never before in my twenty+ years here....

I did it over again and had to request Tim to delete the first one because everyone was going to it instead of the one I posted and was adding to....... yeah, still confusing.

 And then to add more aggravation (a bit after) I had to retype one long entry all over again because Finescale logged me out.

My 37mm teleported into another dimension forcing me to scratch my own.

Then I was  getting a 504 Gateway Timeout....http://www.sherv.net/cm/emo/angry/desperate-rage-smiley-emoticon.gif

.......every time I tried to reply https://karopka.ru/upload/main/smiles/5/aaa.gif....  for three days.

 

        Most times I do type stuff on a word doc but because of the pictures involved  I wasn't sure if I could get it to work.  
 
So, I had all the pictures and wording complete and ready to go and just
as I moved to  Submit Your Reply  
                           http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/war/grenade.gif....... the page vanished.  
    
The browser was still functioning but the page I was on went  somewhere?
 
Found out later that spectrum was having some issues at about that same time. 
 
 
Well, now I hope you all can understand why I was so bent out of shape.
This thread seems to have been cursedhttp://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/sick/about-to-vomit.gif from the first letter in some odd manner.
                            
 
I want to finish this up so I won't feel so pressured to get this posted and done.
 
                               http://www.sherv.net/cm/emo/christmas/santa-smiley-emoticon.gif    
Coming up real soon unless another http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/jobs/plumber-smiley-emoticon.giffubar blows up.

That's ok,  I just made me a better one.
I've had several different ideas about the base and have pretty much decided on the one in the pic. I'm posing it in a stance that gives the impression of surfacing.
I hope to see you build one also.
Thank you for your reply.

http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/jobs/cleaner-smiley-emoticon.gif cleaning up the sub's wintergarten.

 

 

 

A bit more work below   ........... but much more to go.

 

 

 

Now this is getting it to where I want it.      Snorkel is now in the down position...  it's movable.

                                                                   

 

 

I'm going with the 6 months at sea look.

 

 

 

I’m experimenting with several different bases. Here's one in this pic.

I still have a ways to go http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/expressions/confused-shrug-smiley-emoticon.gif

      The next time I surface,   ت this project will be finished.

WOW!

  I have this kit in the "Stash".  Sorry I'm late to your }build".

I am greatly impressed with your "Sub" assembly (Pun intended?) work.

  Your insulator detail is amazing.  I would have drilled thru my fingers trying this.

 

"After the insulators have dried securely in place, add another brushing of future to keep them that way. This gives you a semi-rigid structure to work with."

 

        Thanks.

            I will be breaking out my #73 bit for this kit.

           Nino.

         

Thank You Nino!https://karopka.ru/upload/main/smiles/5/hi.gif

 When I finally get through with this (very soon) you'll hopefully want to go for it too since you already have one ready to go.

I don't normally do ships but I've really enjoyed working this one out  ......it's something different for a change.

http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/toilet/reading-on-toilet.gifAnd yes, I figured "Sub" assembly would be a fiting title for the way I wanted to present this. I'm glad you got a smile out of that.

You'll need a few track links from a Panzer III or IV if you want the same results and you'll have to work this out on a close up surface about 6 to 8 inches from your face to control it and will help prevent those tiny parts from escaping to the place where all little parts go....

                                                                            http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/yellow-hd/mean-devil-smiley-emoticon.gif

 

Remember  that the holes will have to be http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/object/power-drill-smiley-emoticon-emoji.png ed large enough for the (twisted) twin polyester threads to go through. You'll have to "think ahead" and add the parts in the order that will be the final displayed result.

The drill I used was a size #61. That's .0390 or slightly under 1 mm.

It won't go away.

             WHAT?

      I don't know where "this came from??"

https://i.imgur.com/d8auiDh.png

 So, here it is again.

Have a great day!

WOW!

  I have this kit in the "Stash".  Sorry I'm late to your }build".

I am greatly impressed with your "Sub" assembly (Pun intended?) work.

  Your insulator detail is amazing.  I would have drilled thru my fingers trying this.

 

"After the insulators have dried securely in place, add another brushing of future to keep them that way. This gives you a semi-rigid structure to work with."

 

        Thanks.

            I will be breaking out my #73 bit for this kit.
