@Treehugger I didn't need to drill any hole in this kit (just had to cut off two parts and plug the resulting holes with a part), but whenever I need to do so, I tend to use the same procedure you suggested... :)

Project is going slowly but nicely, expect new pics during the weekend.

Soooo... Big problem!
"Wadda mistake to make" as they would say in Allo Allo.

I'm absolutely not used to varnish large surfaces and apparently overdid it "slightly" while coating the submarine with my Vallejo gloss varnish (can't seem to find any Klear/Future here in Belgium).
The result is that I have three or four pools (drops) of cured varnish that have formed on the external part of the top side.
Only one thing to do: sanding followed by polishing those pools before continuing.

Lesson learned.

Ouch. I have had that happen with future also.

Hey Sebastian, who of that great guys is your grampa? Do you know where this pic has been taken? Do you have more pix?

Hi Holger. Auf dem ersten Bild steht er in der ersten Reihe ganz rechts außen. Im Bild Nr. 2 relativ mittig, lehnt über's Geländer und schaut direkt in die Kamera (...der mit den Handschuhen). Soweit ich herausfinden konnte, wurde das Foto wohl Ende '44 nach Fertigstellung bzw. Ende der Baubelehrung bei Blohm & Voss in Hamburg gemacht.
Vorerst sind das alle Fotos die ich finden konnte. Ich weiß aber, dass meine Eltern noch einige Fotos aus seiner Zeit beim Deutschen Minenräumdienst haben.

Sehr interessant!!!
Ein Opa von mir war auch Minenräumer auf einem M 40 Boot. Da ist leider kein Bausatz zu bekommen, soweit ich weiß...

Wieder ein super Modell von Dir. Ich habe auch noch diverse 1:350er U-Boote liegen, aber nicht so die Erfahrung mit Wasserdarstellung. Kannst Du dazu vielleicht mal etwas auf eurer Homepage einstellen?

Arne, schau mal hier:

Jim Baumann hat einige Links zusammen gestellt. Da ist sicher was für Dich dabei. Sehr zu empfehlen, der Link zur Methode von Frank Spahr und Chris Flodberg!

Cheers, Christian
