Revells U-99, Waterline

Postby Georgeconna » Tue Mar 26, 2013 10:06 pm

Hi there, This is a comission build for a gent that wants a waterline U-boat done and he picked U-99 which is a nice little model despite its age. I won't be doing the sea unfortunately so it will be just the build, paint and weather of this yoke.

Heres the piccy so far:
De box:

Instead of Celloptape this time I used masking tape to put it together, Oh with glue as well

Conning tower on for effect:

Hi G,

Moonlighting a bit?
Nice, I saw that sub, is indeed older model of a Mk VII. I like the newer Revell VII a lot (not the large 1:72)
Strange scale 1:125 iso 1:144.

How did you cut it through?......not easy task.
Did you brace the now weakened hull?

Waterlines are interesting on a nice sea-dio...did your man tell where he wanted the cut? Now it is horizontal for a rather calm sea.

Yep D, Ya man wanted it the same a the box, Cut with a Dremel along a scribed line. Nearly have all the sub assemblies done tonight, The mouldings are really shot on this oe wnet I got further along, Loads of Cleaning up. The hull will be braced with some plasticard when I get a mo as well.

Nice work so far George! YOu were bust clearing a space on the bench for this one :D I'm also surprised how big this is. It should make for a nice display. Will the chap display it on here when he's finished the base? I'd love to see it all done. The portside list was a good idea... that should add a bit more dynamism to the display.

I can't see this taking you too long at the rate you're going :lol:
