              Made by scratch the upper fairing outside the torpedo muzzle door, incredibly absent in the model ( I utilized a spare part from the same Trumpeter kit ).
              About the drainage holes next to the same fairing, I decided to cut out the plastic and remake them from plasticard....

                  Really like the details in the shaft support! Excellent work.
                  If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                      Waiting for some help, I continue the work of superdetailing of various items, without a building order.
                      The piston of the aft torpedo tube ( in the posted photo the cap provided by the kit and my one );the doubling of support electric motors ribs with 1 mm. plasticard.
                      In a short time I'll made by scratch the auxiliary engine for compressed air, totally wrong in kit ( see posted photos: the kit's one and the real thing ) and the aft bulkead trim tank ( see posted photos: the kit's one and the real thing )...
                      I hope in some drawings of aft stern structure outside the pressure hull, temporarily suspended....
                      Cheers
