Italeri 1/35 S-38 S-Boat


Recommended Posts

One of my bigger lockdown builds. This turned out to be more of a problematic build than I had expected. The starboard hull was short shot on the lower bow which was fun to fill and shape. Used Eduards etch set for it and also the Eduard German ensign. The length of the hull made it a real problem when sanding and painting. Otherwise a surprisingly fun build once the hull was sorted.

Looks great! I do think the S38 type are much prettier somehow than the S100 boats

 

I notice the 40mm does not have the lower shute for the ejected shell casings, I wonder why these were not used. I understood that the Bofors fitted to S boats were mostly captured British Army weapons, which do have the lower shute as far as I know
