      It is so good to see you working on submarines again. Your work is amazing.
      If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                Good looking tools. Photos are fine, they capture the high relief panel lines just fine. Are you going commercial with this kit? I love the 209's, in their many, varied forms. I used to build a lot of them for the defense community when Ellie and I were doing government work.
                No David, I don't think I'll go commercial with this one, actually I'm seriously thinking of stopping production of all of my kits.
