After much soul searching, and given 3 Jambino's and all you 'orrible lot to look after (kidding! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif) I have decided I simply don't have time to complete this U-2540 XXI U-Boat model.

So, I put a call out to those model builders we have amongst the community - who might like to finish it? It includes all the correct paints, complete model kit, glue, brushes, scalpel etc.

Your reward for finishing it? It's yours to keep http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If someone would like to take it on, let me know - PM me your address - and I'll send it to wherever you live. I don't want anything for it in return, but perhaps you could post a running update every now and then so we can see how it progresses?

I am thinking to buy one too. but the last product is not that good: I brought the VIIC about a couple of months ago, and built it, my very first serious model. But it really takes time and a lot of patience, and of course a lot of skills, especially for a beginner. And I am lack of all three. I didn't even paint it, so it looks like a toy but not a real submarine. I wish I could do it again to make it better and paint it.
Wish the one who going to build that have better luck.

@ RealJambo You call THAT a submarine? You should be ashamed of yourself/

@ Foehammer-1 I know where you can get a better one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I would like to stress that to get that super good detailed and all then then you can at least double the price it is up for.

I really like the scale and the size is listed in the bottom right.

Now THAT is a model!!!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Hum, interesting. Looks like fun http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

This particular line got me worried.

"Stern tubes, propeller shafts and propellers " I thought XXI's didn't have stern tubes??? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Jawohl, herr Kaleun! (Did I spell that right? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif)

I'll post updates in this thread probably. When I get the package, that is. And when it's not Monday, Tuesday or especially Wednesday, when I'm stuck at uni 8:30-18:30. I will be able to get work done on it on other days, and especially weekends after work http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Oh, btw. Would you guys like to make a sort of guessing competition, you know, like on cruise ships they tried to guess how far they went that day, but we can guess how long it will take me?

[edit] typos, lots of typos. I had a long day lol

They don't mean torpedo tubes, stern tubes are the tubes the prop shafts run through.
