ICM Seehund 1/72. My first floaty WIP

Recommended Posts

Looking in the stash for something not too demanding I pulled out the ICM Seehund.

A mornings work and it is now a quite neat little submarine almost ready for paint - having seen some other Seehund builds, that is going to be a challenge.

Not happy with the solid dome on the hatch, so looking at alternatives.

I did mean to document the build a bit better, but it just fell together. Some fettling and dry fitting required.

(The other floaty thing in my stash is the Colombo Express)

Hi John - nice work - they are cracking little kits.  I struggled like you with the dome until I was overcome by a moment of Clarity:banghead:

They work.

Enjoy the weathering.

Thanks. I was thinking headlamps or astrodomes, or possibly shaping and polishing a bit of perspex rod.

Carved and polished a suitable bit of clear spruce in to a new dome, and put on some pre shading.

And a coat of off white on the uppers

Looks like the Germans had no money left for anti-fouling and now the ship is populated with barnacles. :D

 

Good luck with the painting I'm sure it will be great,

Well, it worked fairly well.

I am fairly sure the original was probably rough "field camo". Touched in a few creeps with a brush, and added a few extra spots where there were gaps.
