U-995 Mission accomplished
« on: 15 Sep , 2010, 11:43 »
Hi,

i am new on the forum, my name is Karel Ton, age 37, and i live in The Netherlands.

I am building the U-995, i visited this boat last year in Laboe and it was very impressive.
This visit inspired me to build the U-995.

I will post pics of the progress until the point where i am now, if there are any comments or tips please let me now.

Hi Karel

Welcome aboard! Your U-995 look wonderful some far.  Will you be building U-995 as now at Laboe or at the end of WW2?

Thanks Jan and Simon  ;)
I will build the U-995 in war condition.
As can be seen on one of my latest builds (1/9 scale Harley davidson WLA, see pics), i really like rust...







Therefore the U Boot will be weathered, i am really looking forward to that stage of the build.
