  • SWM BLUEBACK soon to be available again

    Nautilus Drydocks will soon be selling the Small World Models 1/96 BLUEBACK kit. I've assembled one, painted it up real pretty and it came out like this:



    This kit (and most of the other SWM kits) have been floating around a few years in tooling form. FINALLY! someone -- Bob Martin to be specific -- has pulled it all together and secured the services of glass, metal, and resin guys. I'm the resin and metal guy. Another shop is doing the GRP hull parts. Bob will package things and put them back on the market. FINALLY!

    Anyway .... here's some of the work I do to get this kit out there again:

      Super stoked to get these awesome kits out to the market! I should have new instructions for the Blueback in the next week. I have one more left in stock and ready to rock with 3 more enroute.

            Still honing that slick sales technique, I see.

                "Sit on it and spin" is such a great sale maker. You can envision people lining up to receive that one - except those that are married of course. As I always say, "I don't need to put up with your abuse, my good sir, I'm MARRIED!"

                    Blast me your e-mail and I'll send you a PDF of the BLUEBACK instructions. I've left you dangling long enough I think.

                      Working on a revised version, though the originals still have 100% of the info on there (more, likely, as they'll go into the linkages, which are already set up in the new kits!).
