OK I worked on the topside of con tower. I like the improved look... it looks beefed up. I know rivet counters would scream DEATH to me! LOL If anybody have seen Alexander Glass' work on his Seehund, you will understand why I liked his build very much.
Finally got to use this tool and I liked it very much! I have two sets... round and hexagon shaped rivets.

My fav professor Plunk, Jeremy my fav deaf buddy, Tony my fav NJ boy (don't tell Marc I said this!) and John my fav Aussie buddy... glad you are enjoying the duel and I really appreciate you posting as it keeps us going. Thanks my friends! Sorry very little bench time over the weekend... we can blame to great football games over the weekend. But did get started on the figure...
I just caught up on this thread. Can't really add anything technical to the discussion, but I love the work I'm seeing. I may have to track this kit down...some really inspiring work. You killed it on the torpedoes.

Bruce- Thanks man! Hoping you get to see it at the show... that's my goal.
Mr T- Thanks boss... you know how much I love painting my little figures. LOL
Professor- LOL! Thanks I think it looks OK now... definitely extra care when compared to other resin figures.
Wizard- LOL! Loved the smell of pipe when I was a kid... my uncle smoked one often. Thanks!
Marc- Man, I am really looking forward to Columbus... we will buy each other drinks then we will be best friends!
Bob- I agree... I paid $18 plus shipping. When I opened the box, I was amazed how bad it was. I was expecting it to be as good as other resin figure makers. I will be keen about ordering more figures from Royal Model in the future unless they are the only player in the game like this German seaman since nobody else offer. I think it came out OK...
Andy that works for me. But if all it takes is drink... oh boy are we gonna be GOOD friends LOL.
Still waiting for the Archer rivets but while the wee little things are drying on that mother Fokker I added the weld to the base of the tower, and the travel stops for the control surfaces. I also saw some model... and 1:1 subs... with a lip around that flat area of the tower. I liked it so added that too. And I just had to stick the fish up there with some funtac to see what it's gonna look like.

Disaster averted today. I was clean up the pop and decided that it needed a bit of thinning. Should have left well enough alone. The Dremel chattered across one the the blades and chunked the edge. Once it was reshaped I was able to reshape the other 2 to match so it looks OK just a bit smaller but don't think it'll show.
Then there s good new... and bad news.
The good new is PRIMER TONIGHT... WOOHOO!
The bad news is making a couple hundred balls of fun tack.
