    If your hands are not involved, it's not craftsmanship.

    Did you build it, or did you assemble parts gathered from other sources?

    Yes, to both questions!

ID:	118210 Hello all,

      I paid Scott a visit this afternoon as it had been a while and wanted to look at the Romeo. This is going to be a nice little boat. I took down the borei for a size comaprison. Dolgoruki (1/140) and Romeo (1/96). These old soviet diesel boats from the 1950's sure have character...

      Great work Scott ,

      Looking forward to seeing what you do with Resolution..

      Dave.

        I'm amazed you can cope with it so good David, you stayed polite and limited yourself to 4 sentences.
        Jeez that must be some strong pills you take.

        Grtz,

So far I can get plenty of horizontal lines but the vertical ones are much more difficult. You might be able to see at leat two vertical lines towards the rear of the tower, the rest have mysteriously disappeared. I received a 1/44 Trumpeter 33G in the mail a few days ago. Lots of details and a great source of inspiration. I might make a 33G tower as well as the standard one to fit on the hull.

          I'm working in the garage tonight because its still 28 degrees C here. To hot for the workshop!
          I like the trumpeter kit, but I even more like the model underneath, although you try to cover the spoiler with the kit I'm sure that is a R8.

          Your idea of the mesh is brilliant, would have been awesome if that had turned out as you had planned. I donít have any experience with 3D printing but maybe the resolution wasnít fine enough, just wild guessing here.

              Resistance is futile.
              If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                  New Chinese colour scheme - although this one might end up in North Korean green. Just depends on whether I can find a 1/96 scale fat little ****er to stand in the open hatch.

                      Correction: "Jammed tight in the open hatch". Or, what we used to call a fat guy on the boat, 'hatch-plug'.

                        Oh dear..... I have all kinds of inappropriate images flooding my over worked brain. "Hatch plug" might become a new and well used term around my gaff.

                            Nice work , scott

                            As mentioned Fantastic work with or without an imitation plastic hatch plug "dear leader" with obligatory adoring crowds of half starved army soldiers standing on the rear deck creating drag whilst the dear leader tells the sub commander how to do his job because he obviously doesn't know.

                              More work on the Dear Leaser's chariot. Getting the basic shape right and starting to fit the appendages.

                                Will have are to organise after Christmas or new year to see Resolution and the 'Dear Leaders" boat. It's looking nice!
