  1. Trying to get the arrangement of the crew and stores to look right. They are not glued down yet, so tell me what you think...
  2. Just some crates and boxes for dressing around the deck crew to pose with.
  3. Been working here and there on the crew for the deck... Not my best work, but it will do... The deck party should be better..
  4. Yes sir I will.... May I introduce you all to the completed U-995, circa 1944, a Type VII C/41 u-boat on her way home in the fall of 1944 after a very long patrol...
  5. Wow...that's the second time that has happened. I'll repost it and see if that helps...
  6. Finally all one piece now. Some small details left to be done and I can stick a fork in it...
  7. Looks like very close to final assembly and detailing. This is the stuff made from a WW2 Merchant Seaman's nightmares...
  8. Thanks for the compliments guys. This is my first attempt at a sub model since the mid 70s when I worked part-time in a hobby store after classes in high school. The flash photos earlier make the rust stand out a lot more than in normal light like above. This is the look I was trying to achieve.
  9. So I settled for markings of U 995 circa late 1944...and end to the happy times in the mid-Atlantic. The C/41 boats were supposed to alleviate the main attack boats from troublesome aerial attack by Allied escort bombers and fighters. Didn't happen...thankfully. The rusty weathering is representative of a boat that has spent a months long patrol and is finally nearing home for refit and crew exchange. The conning tower is just starting the process whereas the hull is ready for her final flat clear coating.
  10. Thank you...that's what I have been working for. Nasty enough?
  11. Now that's just looking nastier by the minute...three different washes of AK light to heavy rust and a black wash on top. Some areas to smooth out, but I believe it works...
