1/48 Trumpeter Uboat Call out.
« on: 07 Apr , 2018, 02:16 »
Hello all
Other than Bianco who is building an accurate exterior is there any members here who are building the interior that can share notes?

Thanks

Well I'm in that

I bought the model and now buying what I think I'm going to need stage.

The build will not start till 2019, or so I hope.

Want finish a few other projects first.

Good Luck to all.

Later Tim

Hi Raymic,
unlike you said, I'll spend all my capacities to reproduce the interiors of the Trumpeter's model; I already made something, but without any order or buiding program.
This model, with its six compartements ( each one is a model on itself ), will give work for years....
With purpose of no getting tired, I'm making particulars here and there, without any order, but as soon as possible I'll start with a compartment, trying to complete it.....
As I said in other circumstances, Laboe's U995 is, unfortunately, the only one reference for building the interiors of our model; we already know that it is not a true replica of Type VIIC as our model, but it is not possible to have other full interiors images from another boat...
Actually I'm working on conning tower skin; soon some photos....
Stay tuned

Look at the work of this French modeler:

Although he doesn't care too much the precision, there are many interesting hints...
Cheers
