Looks superb, that's an unusual kit, with all the interior detail.

Thanks all.
Yes Al, but only for six years, two of those in schools learning my trade.
Reactor compartment complete. Next are the engineering spaces, and then the base.

Cheers Al. The orange cylinders contain 16 Polaris SLBM(Submarine Launched Ballistic Missiles). Back in the day, it was called Sherwood Forest.

Looking awesome! I still can't get over how cool this looks ... and how cramped.

Great work! Having built it (unpainted) as a kid, I can really enjoy seeing it become what I dreamed of way back during the thermonuclear chess era!

Kats: I would take a submarine over a main battle tank ANY day!
Harron: This is, quite literally, the same kit you built as a kid. Renwal/Revell spared all expenses in re-issuing this one.

Engineering spaces complete. Now it's on to the base. I'm toying with some ideas for the base, but will choose one after painting the flat black portion that will attach to the port side of the hull.

Beautiful looking cut away build! The interior detailing is out of this world. Looking forward to seeing what you decide to do for a base.

A tale of two halves; In keeping with its' era, the fit of the hull halves is just not good and there is nothing I can do about it.
I decided to keep things simple with the base. Now to add the hull numbers, a few more crew members, and I can call her finished.
