    You guys kill me, here I am slopping my way through a Walrus build and a Akula fix, and you all are making beautiful works of art.......very inspiring.
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

      You can't kill an Admiral. I was a lowly seaman so I would get strung up at the yard arm. Me personally I just want to build some of those head scratching boats. Golf is a decent size and would be perfect to launch some model rockets out of the sail. Now I just have to build a 1/72 Glomar Explorer and if it sinks I can just grab it off the sea bed.

            I think this will suffice for a Golf II. What do y'all think?

                  Hey Tim if we give them our Molson`s with the alcohol content in our beer, they will be too wasted to make any problems, unlike that recycled horse p__s in the states, it`s like adult cool aid, how much of that do you need to drink before you feel it?Two or three 24`s???

                  Ya that is what we need to drive here on the streets with the idiots on the road BUT I would rather take a Bradley as my first choice.

                    Check this out. Left my T-55 parked in a LA hood for 10 minutes and look what these punks did to it. Now I have to call my Geico agent.

                        Hi Tim, that is superb man.

                        I'm not here to be a pain in the ass (I'm just a SOB that wants to share information) but I thing she will even come more to life if you open up those recesses of the missile hatches.
                        They are ellipse shaped and on the real sub is just an opening in the outer hull, maybe you can make a tween deck underneath.

                        To add the hinges on PS will be also adding detail.

                        Just suggestions man no criticism, the sail is already wonderful as it is.

                        Please see pictures below maybe they can clarify what I mean (the first picture is overkill but it gives a clear view on what is going on)

                        Grtz,
                        Bart

                          Where did that first photograph come from Bart? Looks like a serious model.

                            A gift from those MIB in front.

                            It's a model in the Central Naval Museum in St Petersburg.......need to visit the place so I can drool all over.

                              Masts installed. Hope they are right. Now I just have to make a mold for the resin cast sail splash deflector and glue it on. Only thing left is scribe the rest of the detail in the hull then make the hull molds.

                                I have 8 of something like 26 flood holes cut out. Those eight have taken me a week to do. In the same time you have built a complete sail! Oh how I am jealous of your abilities! I am so enjoying the building I am seeing here as well as our Aussie friends.
