S.S.N. Tigerfish from Ice Station Zebra

Hi. Made this recently from an old Revell Nautilus sub kit....I’ve added a shot of the USS Ronquil which stood in for the Tigerfish for surface and quayside shots.....The submerged and under the ice pack shots are a model based on the Nautilus...

I had to sand and fill the seams, torpedo holes and ballast tank holes which was a bit of work... Image

I remember reading the book as a kid! Good at the time, but probably a bit dated now. Written by Alistair McLean. I don't remember ever seeing the film.

Lovely work Morris, as usual. Great weathering!
Cheers
