And you're right, it's really pretty much a scratchbuild. I don't know if you saw or not, but this all started with musings on what, if anything
, could be bashed from the Revell Nautilus kit
- wherein I concluded the closest
things were actually pre-WWI
vintage boats, with the S-boats only being a stretch, "with more work". The understatement
of the decade
- no doubt my "Nautilus conversion" is going to wind up with about one square inch of Revell hull left showing...
But I'm glad you like it - I'm enjoying it, too, as it is quite the learning experience. We have another guy here, "Sirago" (aka Bill A.), who's doing a similar scratchbuild of a Narwhal-class (interwar) fleet sub. I hope he'll grace us with some of his progress pics this year, too.
Thanks again for the encouragement, buddy!
