Default Fin's ain't what they used to be.....

....because they look even better this time round. She'll be one tough sub by the time you've finished, and I'm sure that all the hard work and fretting over things like (daren't mention it, but it rhymes with "fainting") will all be worth it.

Great pictures as always M, and I'm looking forward to the next phase!

Kindest regards

Patrick

Hi Patrick
As things stand at the moment I still do not feel like fainting, the experience of the last build is still strong so it will be some time before it comes likely.
Meantime its the turn of the ratemaster surround. This comes all in one piece so its just a matter of cleaning up and sticking it on. When I stuck the hull sections together I made sure the rear hull area was the same 'thickness' of the ratemaster surround if that makes sense. Once fitted it was the usual filler and sanding to blend them together. Oh yes I forgot to say before I did all this I also drilled a hole to take the bolt which will hold the ratemaster in place. I fitted it in and checked that it would rotate ok and miss the sides.
Unfortunately I didn't take many photos of this stage.

Its getting very near the end of this build. To sort out the torpedo tubes I decided to use a couple of the tiger joe tank wheel hubs which were more or less just glued in place. For the rear side outlets I used some ultra cheap toy car wheels. Once sprayed they don't look too bad.
I also fitted the two fins on the rear section, usually I fill in any gaps between the joins but I decided to leave them to make it look like they could move.
If you look at the original model by Master Models it looks like they were supposed to move but I don't think they were shown on the tv.

Default But they're perfect!

Hi M, trust you to come up with a cost-effective way of detailing. Great idea! The sub continues to look better and better. Thanks for the continuing developments.

Kindest regards

Patrick

I have used Tiger Joe wheel hubs in loads of things over the years (you don't need them for the mobile). Great build by the way.
