The sub is now assembled, quite a bit of sanding was required for the upper and lower joint line but only a small amount of filler was needed. Unfortunately I had to re scribe the torpedo doors which was not the easiest of tasks! However they look pretty reasonable. The periscopes and assorted bits have all been sprayed with alclad chrome and finished off with vallejo colours. I have also painted the model using tamiya acrylics namely hull red and a mix of german grey and NATO black for the upper surfaces, pictures will be up soon.
So far a very easy and enjoyable build and quick too!
