  1. I built this massive Trumpeter U-boat (1/48) and although I’d always planned putting it on a nice wooden plynth, I had this mad idea about putting it “in the sea”. I’ve never worked with any kind of diorama before, and especially resin, but I was wondering what your thoughts were. As the boat is clear and lit one side below the waterline I thought it’d be cool to “float” the whole ship in tinted resin, with sea texture on top, so top-down looks like she’s a normal solid ship, but a side view from starboard would show the illuminated interior. Anyone ever seen anything like this before? I think I can make her watertight to keep the resin out, but fag packet calculation suggests I’d need about 40L of resin which might kill the project as I’d be looking at £00’s at hobby shop prices, but whether it’d be possible to texture the sea on top once she’s set in the resin without damaging the boat. I’d also have to find a way of minimising the appearance of the wires protruding from the keel as well, but that’s minor compared to the above. Any thoughts appreciated.
  2. Dear Fellow Modellers Flyhawk do a charming but miniature set of their Type VIIB against a dry dock backdrop. Here is a tired Type VIIB back for repair Hope you like it? Andrew
  3. Good afternoon, colleagues. Rather-it will be a review of the kit for construction, than just a demonstration of the "skeleton" model of the German submarine 7 series. There is already one similar review on the site, but without a demonstration of the finished product. The Chinese firm Jasmine model produces some rather original "skeleton models of equipment". The material of the etching plates is declared as stainless steel. Partly similar to the truth, springy alloy, quite poorly treated with abrasive. Details in the most part are going to like puzzles and are attached with cyanoacrylate. The instructions are in the form of drawings, sometimes illegible, but it is not difficult to understand. Etching is done very well, the details are easy to assemble. A great set to pass a few winter evenings, and the product looks original. If only the price would be more democratic, but this is another topic. Enjoy your viewing. Sincerely, Mikhail
