    No, sir. That anchor well part slipped right in there perfectly. I have yet to correct my big mistake of not angeling the deployed bow planes, but that fix is planned before I start with the painting.

    I don't think the good Doctor will mind. After all, the model I'm presenting here was assembled from his exceptionally fine kit:




























    Here's a video of it running on and below the surface: https://youtu.be/zRdQ-h9sORE

    Thank you sir. We cut our teeth on Industrial Diaplays. I still have you magnificent USS NAUTILUS in the rotation for final detailing, painting and weathering -- maybe I'll finish it this year. Got it all trimmed out and running, and it's a great performer in the water.

    This Type-23 of yours will be one for the ages.

    We are of a kindred spirit: They may never see it, but WE know it's there!

    Working on the radio cabin that was located port side of the control room. Walls are white, the table, similar to the VIIc boats, was painted green. Below the table on the left corner was the drive for the direction finder antenna. The direction was set by turning the hand wheel. The rotation was transmitted via an angular gear and an axle that went through the table upwards to the top of the cabin. There another angular gear made the rotation horizontal and sent it out via an axle to the direction finder antenna....getting there.

    Painted the underside of the floor of the control room and glued it into place. Fits. Next I dry-fitted the pressure hull and the little cabin for the radio guy. Looks very promising. But now I have to figure out in which order to paint and assemble al that stuff....it will work.
