The work I do would probably not match up to the quality of workmanship that others create on this forum.That's why I am a bit reluctant to display my efforts.

As requested I have taken some photos at my local pond.It was originally a quarry but the local council has done a miraculous job and created a eco park.

I'm building the 1:125 Revell type VII, to sail surface as well as a semi- submerged (aiming for periscope depth!!) dynamically I'm planning to be able to set the dive planes in straight or diving position but I was working to set both bow and aft.... Do you mean I can get away doing only the rear? Thx! Boo

Love the photos, especially the last one, like the perspective you get from an ASW aircraft. The port lookout shouting ALARM!!!

BTW, what paint did you use?

Thank you. The paint I used was Testors/Modelmaster enamel in the small spray cans.Took me ages to find the correct colours as model shops in my area of the world don't seem to be stocking these paints any more.
