It's done. I have the rigging done and the insulators on the rigging made
from super glue and painted gray. My eyes have had enough micro work.
They burn and are crossing, time for a break, I may weather it sometime
in the future. I want to add some rust to the drain holes on the hull. I also
want to do another u boat but in larger scale, 1/144!---John

and strong, a product du Canada.---John

So take a pic next to the standard, a Tamiya paint bottle, so I can tell just how small this thing really is.

Lordy, that IS small! Fine work, "rigging" and camo paint bring it to life!
