Thanks Steve. The pluming parts are O gauge parts some I had in my bits box, and some I brought from Duncan Models.

Just a little update.....

Image

This is still a work in progress.
Image

After watching the series das boot time and time again, pausing rewinding, pausing rewinding this is how I see the bulkhead. The props for the series where all built from photos that Lothar-Günther Buchheim took while onboard the vessel for the German propaganda.

Image

Image

Still a little bit to do with adding some more details.

Photos 6,7 and 8 show bulkhead.

CMK do a range of resin updates for the Revell 1/72 type VIIc. You might be able to adapt them to fit this. Not cheap though - a torpedo room is about £50 :o

Oh, by the way, I'm back :dance:

Hi Tigerace, glad you managed to get one. If your doing the U96 as it should be you'll need to redo some of the sections as they are based on the U-995 which was modernised from the original and as so parts of this add on are incorrect.

I've watched the film/mini series Das Boot over and over again trying to get the best possible photos and this is why I've changed some of mine.

I won't be doing any lighting in mine as it will be in a sealed display case and personally don't see the point, the parts well that's a bit tricky some of them are pieces I had in my spare's box there all O Gauge bits.

Some of them came from Duncan Models http://www.scalelink.co.uk/acatalog/Dun ... ONLY_.html the Industrial taps ref AD136 I used on the torpedoes, I also brought some 7ft Vertical Steam Boiler ref AD098 and used the Vertical Steam Boiler Ref: AD098 white metal parts only.

I hope this helps.

Finally picked this back up again, I've given the inside a coat of primer and have just given that a coat of dark sea grey all over.

I've decided to paint my interior just grey with some more grey :roll: :lol: the white and grey scheme I've seen some in isn't how this sub would have looked during its working life.

The interior was a dark and dirty place, so I'll be grimimg this up ones it's had a coat of sealer.
