    I must say that it looks absolutely real. I can say that because I have driven and crewed a few around the job here. We have water on three sides of us and ship quite a bit of our Concrete Bridge Beams by water. Until we sold them and started using other companys to supply the Tugs, ours were the "Dotti Do", "Capt. Mulligan" and "The Flying Dutchman". Those were the days.
    IT TAKES GREAT INTELLIGENCE TO FAKE SUCH STUPIDITY!

      I only pointed Jason in the general direction. He went home and went to town on the weathering. Most impressive. It's official now: I hate Jason!

      Smear some of that green crayon on the waterline and you're done.

        I already did that and you were right it really sets off the waterline. I am still nowhere near your class of modeler David but I am having fun trying to get there.

            That is very impressive! Nice work and I love the weathering, it brings her to life and gives her character. Excellent work sir!
            If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                          I go for a walk most mornings with my dog, and some neighbors. One of them is a lady named - Carol Moran. She's sort of tickled pink that she has a ship named after her. But I'm not so sure she's keen on us talking about her rusty bottom!

                            I like it. It is great to see what can be done with a basic kit and a bit of effort.
                            Well done.
