Hi!!
Here with another small update on the S-100, a little more scratch and more rivets. I finally glued the front deck in place and used gap glue to fill the line between the parts, because of the sanding theRivets close to it were lost. So I used the resin rivets decal to fix it.
Here the rivets already replaced

Same for the front part of the deck

Next I fixed the armored bridge to the boat but left the cabin assembly out for ease of painting
Later, for this you need to cut all the pins on the bottom of the walls so the cabin can slide to its
Place
Cut all the pins


So now you can slide it in


Next is the creation of the demijohns, this is French liquid containers. After studying the work on the other forums I made it using 3 different styrene tubes…
The italery ones

Original demijohn

Here I made the two new ones, the italery one on the right


The top is filled with green putty mixed with a little lacquer thinner to make it softer

After sanding the putty at an angle I add some details using styrene strip and styrene half round strips

Also added the small filler neck on the side of the long neck
Finally the handles are made with cooper wire bent to shape


Here the finished demijohns, another great improvement over the kits ones

Here are all the dimensions for the parts


That’s all for now, hope to do more in a couple of weeks
Thanks!
Abdin

Abdin,
I, too, am working on an S-100, but, since I live "out in the bush", I have very little in the way of references other than the Internet. I am particularly interested to know where you found references for the detail added to the control valves of the torpedo tubes, as shown on page 8 of this thread, as I can find nothing to help me detail this area.

Hello Abdin,

Nice, very nice progress.

Sorry for the delay..................vacation.

I made a drawing of the sights, hopes its helps.


In this case my main source is the Armorama site and the Atlantic-pirat Kriegsmarine forum.
Unfortunately the last is down at the moment.
Use is made of a number of pictures to the appropriate dimensions to be determined.

Cheers,

Rob

Hi Ausron, the only reference I found is on the squadron book on page 41
the photo of the bloun up bridge, I have a digital scan of this page and
when you zoom and brigthen it you can see some of the pipes that seems to connect to the valves, the rest is just creative guess. I will be posting it so you can decide by your self.

Abdin,
Thank you for the picture, I'm glad that you labelled it! The interpretation you have on your model looks fine to me, now, so I will build it that way. I can see that I will have to get hold of the Squadron book in order to do a reasonable job on this model. Have you seen the site http://buildthebismark.proboards.com...nt&thread=1500 which has some good guidance on modifying the demijohns on the rear deck, and lotsa other stuff! Keep up your good work, it's a pleasure to see!

Hi to all my friends again!
First to wish you all a merry Christmas and soon a happy New Year wish you receive your wanted models under the tree.
To continue with the build I constructed the bases or holders for the demijohn’s, using bits of PE soldered together and a verlinden resin bolt on each leg.
2 rings and 3 legs are needed



Here the finished base

The bases for the smaller containers are made the same way



Next I wanted to add a little detail to the interior of the map room, so started by locating the position of
the ventilator and making some doors for what I think is a storage area
The location of the ventilator screen is marked



Using styrene I made the doors and bits of rod for the knobs, here are the measurements



Then a table was made, a piece of styrene is used as a support


The table is made with a piece of styrene measuring .025 x 43mm long
And 12.5 wide

Followed by a wall lamp, the lamp is a resin copy from the Opel radio truck set
From Verlinden
