    BR86 2-8-2t Tank Locomotive

    Trumpeter just sold another kit. Thanks for the inspiration. What a cool build.
  2. Looking like quality work so far. I just finished one as well, completely OOB. The PE from rcsubs.cz is great. Oto makes some beautiful products and the fit is perfect. pulling up a chair to follow this one

    Apparently he builds planes equally impressive. I agree with the miniaturization comment Wow

    Hyun Soo Kim has a whole fleet of incredible masterpieces. The IJN I400 is another favorite of mine. I don't have that kind of talent by far, but would still be interested in knowing the various paint and weathering techniques used

    One of the best, if not the best plastic ship models I've ever seen, is this IJN Kongo by Hyun Soo Kim I have not seen any tutorials by him. Was wondering if anyone have a description of how such a hull paint was created? http://www.modelshipgallery.com/gallery/bb/ijn/Kongo-350-hsk/images/KONGKO_01.jpg
  9. Side by side. Again, crappy cell phone photo, but it gives a good idea of size difference
  10. Here is the already fairly large 1/72 Revell VIIc next to the Trumpeter monster.
  11. Crappy photos, but deck is now done and brass deck is installed The quality and fit of the brass from RCSubs is unreal. Absolutely perfect Closeup. every hole in the kit hull lines up with the brass perfectly
  12. This is my first attempt at a "serious" scale model. And it is my 4th plastic build. I started building in October and so far I've done a few quick builds just to practice some painting, PE and build techniques. Attached photo of my entire "fleet" All in 1/72 scale. No effort was done to make them look particularly scale, but I've played around with different weathering techniques. The Flower class Corvette took a month to build, the subs a couple of weekends.
  13. Hewy, I will probably do some oil canning just to get some experience doing it. Not sure if the VIIc's had any pronounced oil canning in real life, but it does look good on a model. The photos I have shows little to no oil canning. I have already added a few impact marks from docking and tying up to other boats. And I will probably also go a little overboard with weathering. It just looks cool.
  14. XXI is such a sexy looking sub.
  15. Thanks to the internet I located a 400 page book written entirely about my subject U-380! And including lots of never before published photos What are the odds of finding such a wealth of information about a randomly picked subject. Fortunately I paid attention to my German classes in school. Will be needing them :-) https://www.amazon.de/ZEITGESCHICHTE-Kleeblattboot-Feindfahrt-Mittelmeer-Zeitgeschichte/dp/3803500206
