Hi Guys,

I am a U-boat enthusiast and modeler. If anyone is interested or knows anyone interested, in commissioning a custom display U-boat model, please visit my Home Page for photos and more info. I work exclusively with Revell's 1:72 (36in) and 1:125 (18in).

Thank You.

Nice. I've always liked building models but they always come out looking like trash. Yours look extremely well done.

Very nice work!

I use to like modelling when I was young. I still have a model of U-47 which I never build. It says 1988 on the box so it has been there for a while, maybe its time I start building it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Missouridrifter, all the info is on the web page. The 1:72 starts at $500. It's 3ft long. The other is 1:125 starts at $300 and is roughly 18" long. After Market kits are extra. You're going to get the best possible build you can find. Little to no seams and the boat can look like it just entered dry dock from a patrol. I am, also, constantly researching them to understand them both technically and aesthetically.
Thanks for the comments. I do have good lookin' girls. A very lucky man.

Take Care

Nice models, but not commercial quality (please don't take offence, I offer my comments as constructive criticism for a fellow modeller http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ).

Dry brushing is out.
Need washes.
Need pastels/chalks.
Needs airbrush & masking techniques.

Looking at your personal pics I have to say I wish I'd been as good at the same age, because if you master the 'correct' techniques you'll have to give up your day job at $500 per item. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hi Kpt Zig,

I didn't know there were 'specific' techiniques. As far as I'm concerned, you do what you want to achieve the best result. I have found looking at other models that airbrushing tends to give an unrealistic appearance. Looks airbrushed. I do use washes. And again chalks, pastels look like chalk and pastels.

No offense taken. Just can't understand why one would limit one self to a few 'specific' techniques.

In any case, I ,like everyone else in the world am trying to make a living. This would bring in some extra income for my family. I make the best product and I would appreciate any negative or critical commments be made to me by personal e-mail. That way the rest of the world doesn't have to see it.

Thank you
