Mr. Kuhn,
Oh how I wish I could take a photo anywhere near as well as you do for your models!
Thank you for the kind words, I am honored by your praise.

Don

OOT,
Even though we, the Americans, had our own examples which can now be modeled I think alot of folks agree that the U-Boat just had some mighty fine, graceful and yet aggressive lines to it that make them close to our hearts and linger in our minds?
Now, having said that, I just started compiling my reference books to attack the Gato class in my stash someday, hopefully soon?

Thank you very much for the kind words!

Duck, I built one of those Gatos (Excellent name BTW!) for a guy.... if it were mine I'd have had to add on to the house!

Add another foot or so to the U-Boat and you'll get the idea.....

I like the idea of the RI Wolfpack! Maybe start our own Paukenschlag thread...

Well, I like that thought!



Re: a Gato-
Yeah, even though I'm starting to research how I might approach it I'm hesitant to start for exactly the reason you mentioned- room?

Keep talkin' guys...

You're inspiring me to try another shot at my COMBAT MODELS vac-form
U-35 I shelved several months ago.

It has absolutely no detail,and virtually everything has to be scratch-built.
Those WWI boats were a lot smaller than your Type VII's.

How would you feel about having one of the original "Grey Wolves" joining
your ranks?

U-Boater,
I say go for it! It's a most worthy project even if needing alot of your time and care. Once done, we'll be proud to see it!

I just finished reading Shadow Divers (really really good book btw), and and I thought initally this was a model of the U-869 which had been dubbed U-Who since when it was found off the New Jersey coast no one knew what boat it was.

Awesome build though

Duck - one more thing.....well, two more things actually!

First, I love that camo scheme. Subtle but effective.

Second, how did you do the articulated torpedo doors?

Cat,
The doors nearly touch each other at the front end of the boat so I used a tube up there which pivots and then used a styrene link at the back end which was pivoted at both ends where it attaches to the rear of the doors. So, they just swing from side to side as a unit now. One side open, ones side closed- either way.

Talen,
Naw, mines the "who?" because I didn't choose any proto boat but just picked out whatever I liked in features and paint? Therefore, it's plausible, but not accurate to any particular boat or number.

But it was fun!

So it's kind of like it was 'YOUR' boat. That's a fun approach - I've done several aircraft (and one PT boat) that way.

Duck, sweet work! Have you seen Andrea's 1/35 Type VII? Squadron has one in its offices, and that puppy is HUGE!
