The S-38 is on my wishlist. So I'm looking forward to see your build and the finished model.

It is a great kit .... lot of space for details .... and weathering 🙂 But the hull needs lot of putty and sanding to get the covers of the bolts smooth with the rest ..... putty, sanding and some new rivets at the bow are necessary too ....

Love what you've done so far.👍 I've got the Type S-100 in 1/35, but never have been brave enough to have a crack at her.🙁

Going really well. torpedo launchers are 3D printed?
21. February 2018, 23:28
Michael Franz
Yes, 3D printed in very high detail. Con: the launchers are closed ....

Great progress Micha. Are the 3D printed additions something you designed, or from 3rd party?

Irving González
can you explain the 3d part what is?
22. February 2018, 16:32
Michael Franz
The 3D-printed parts are from Shapeways. Very, very great designed !! But not from me 🙂

I'm using some Shapeways products but found modifying them ,such as opening the tubes is difficult since the resin is brittle. Supeurb quality and detail though. at 1:700 3d can't be beat.

yep, i got some stuff from shapeways too. details can be amazing if the designer is good and printed in good quality 🙂
there is already a few added to the database.... SCM Search: *

Wish i'd know about the Shapeway 1:72 torpedo launchers when I built the Revel S-100.
