  • Trumpeter VIIc 1:48 (static)

    I'm not sure if WIPs about static builds are welcome here, so if not, just drop me a line and delete the thread.....

    As a big fan of cutaway submarine models, I could not resist the temptation to get me the Trumpeter VIIc for Christmas. I'll post pictures of the build here, without allot of commenting. If you want to know more, just ask......

    So far I build everything according to plan, only with slight modifications on the bunks, coloring and the air bottles, and I will slightly modify the torpedo tube hatches.

      They sure are, Andreas. Particularly when presented by such a talent as yourself. This is great looking stuff, and will be on the top of my 'things to look at' list each time I log on.

      More! And thanks for posting.

        Andreas, Im glad to see you taking the plunge with this model. It will answer a lot of questions that I had about the quality of the model.

                The frames had red stripes on them?

                  It's wood brown.....and yes, I thought the same. But if you look into the torpedo comprtment of the last surviving VIIc:

                  So its wood cladding of the frames.

                        Taking shape. The torpedo tubes are pretty much done. Still waiting for photo-etched details. I'll add some more details in the living area. The ceiling is now equipped with LEDs. The torpedos are glued into place and need some additional weathering.

                            O.K., started with some modifications to the kit. I fabricated a second cover out of styrene to mirror the one of the right. Turned out reasonably well. I also added some light rust effects on the steel floor.







                            I also started to modify the lower part of the torpedo room. Actually there the kit is missing the lower end of the pressure hull. Below the torpedo storage compartment were the torpedo balancing tank and some trim tanks. With a bit of styrene I added a section of the pressure hull and some internal bulkheads. The ribbing will be next.

                              Test fitting. The interior of the bow will need allot of additional details.....



                              Additional details have already been added to the front of the pressure hull. The original ended in a steel-cast, dome-like pressure hull flor. 3D-Printing --> done.
