This is indeed amazing, I very much appreciate your attention to detail in presenting your work to us. And I think it's just fine where it is, I just consider it armor that floats! Thanks for sharing...

Abdin. . . Don't scare me! lol
I've got a copy of 'Shipcraft 6. German S-Boats' but the plans look to be 1/144.
But hey i can glean sooo much from here.

Would you know if there is any info available of E-Boat deployment during Op. Hannibal
out there? That would help me loads

Once again keep blowin' us away Abdin

Like the way you did the dome for the compass. So simple yet so ingenious!

Hi my friends, here with a small update on the latest work on the schnellboot
I started now with the supports for the side machine guns, this are made with styrene and PH leftovers the styrene rods are .060

All the parts that make the support arms and the finished one on the side

The styrene is drilled to insert the cooper wire to make the pivot points


Here are all the measurements

Finished


A comparison with the reference photo

Now I assembled the resin machineguns from CMK just add the barrel in place


I drilled a hole to add the cocking pin with a small piece of styrene


Here are a couple of photos of the machinegun on its place on the kallote with the resin ammo
Drums



Now I started adding the missing rivets to the kallote, at the end I finished removing all the original rivets and replacing it with the resin ones so it looks all the same

Now it looks like this…




Well that’s it for now, still lots to do, more coming soon!
Thanks!
Abdin

Flak 3.7 cm

Hello Abdin,

Nice progress again!

I have been busy with updating the 3.7 cm flak, see attached photos.



The shield itself is from Eduart with brazed items from lion roar.

Note the scale of the Lion roar etching, looks good


Now the cannon itself, there's a lot to change

The guard I bent brass sheet of 0.5 mm thick.




To the S-100 boats, use was made of mechanical sights. So there is no battery under the seat of the "richtschutze".
The support arms, the frame for the sights and the sights I myself are reworked.



Take another look at the sights and the target mechanism.


The shield from the other side.





Some pics of the RAG (Raketen Abschuss Gerät) which is completly missing from the kit, dont forget.

So, back to the bridge, I'm trying to catch up.

Can someone help me with the following problem?
Of the S 204 "lang" and the S 205 "Ha-Ju" photographs were made ​during the surrender. On the bridge of the Ha-Ju is the radar antenna for the FuMB 32 and 24 visible, the "lang" is missing this. Is this right, there was no radar on the "lang", or were they already removed?
I won't miss them, so don't disappoint me.

Many thankx in advance,

Rob
