Peter, given that you got into 1/144 scale modelling to augment your naval battles on waterways around NSW, this must almost feel like returning to the beginning! The Schnellboot is coming along beautifully and I know Mr Triple Nuts would be suitably impressed. I am! :mrgreen:

Wow that' ll be a good one, a real eyecatcher! Good idea to cover the overly thick railings, will look much more realistic!

I have always admired your aircraft builds but your ship builds are in a league of their own. This is simply fantastic. All those little details are superb.

Peter, will you are some crew to give some 'scale' to the model? Great workmanship.

There are some very nicely moulded Kriegsmarine figures on shapeways if you do go down that route. Very lifelike poses and lots of different options from what I remember. Not wildly expensive either for some reason.
