Here I present my latest build, an OOB build of a Vanguard Class SSBN using the Bronco kit.

The only bit of work needed was the mating of the hull halves. Primed using Halford's grey primer, German tank grey for lower hull and Halford's satin black was used overall. The sub was 'Kleared', decaled and coated with Tamiya satin varnish. Das Boot was masked to leave the deck exposed, with VERY low tac masking over the two decals and painted with Humbrol matt black and the sonar array was glossed with Klear. Five masts were fitted into fin and a couple of Tamiya figures were added to complete build.

Very nice indeed Stuart. Enjoyed the WIP too.

 

I've only ever built one submarine, that was years ago when I scratch built a 1/1200 Oberon! Might have to try my hand at a 1/350 sub one day soon.

Cheers Terry.

Depending how long it takes to build my stock of available RN subs, I may have to scratch an Oberon Class too but in 1/350. Resin Shipyards do produce 2off Oberons in 1/350 but they're out-of-action due to ill health :(

Very nice Stuart I like the colour variation with the matt and clear coated areas one for the notes I think. :book:
