OK. The big VIIC German U-boat is up next. It gets a dunk in the pool. Trimmed and tested. But this model is so large I will only be able to go forward and backward. And I can dive but to turn she needs a bigger pool or the lake.
Anyone have a big ass pool in the LA area I can use??? Let me know.

    What a piece of work. Is the hull coloration from decals applied? In one of the photos it seems like one pie-slice of the disc has a mottled look but the rest looks pristine.

    Steve,
    That is one awesome refit. Really nice.
    Hey, no need to test that U-boat, you know it works!
    Time to get crackin’ on that 57″ !
    Best weekend and thanks again for taking the effort to share and inspire,
    Kerry

      Kerry I wish that was true but the VIIC has more wires, plumbing and electronics than the space shuttle and it all has to be tested in the water. not to mention the trim!

      Glad you liked the Enterprise. Thanks very much.

    Amazing job! I love that first picture… the angle is really dramatic… at least to me. Keep up the good work! Would you mind if I posted that picture (with credit of course) on my facebook, so my friends can see it as well?
