Hello everybody,
 
a new project started .... the Schnellboot S-38 in scale 1:35 of Italeri... the new huge kit based on the older S-100 kit.
 
Some upgrade parts will come from Eduard (etched parts of the S-100), some etched parts of Royal Model for the Bofors, some sea mines of Schatton, gun barrels of Master Model and detailed parts of Shapeways.
 
But first lot of putty is necessary to cover the areas where the bolts were used for mounting the two halfes of the hull...

I have the S-100, but will follow your build for some tips since they are similar and all the S-100 builds are pretty old now.

Yes that's right .... most of the parts are the same (I built the S100 some time ago already) ... and I always hoped that Italeri will do the S38 with the unarmored bridge one day ... :) So here it is :) :)

Thanks for sharing this. I love these boats. The kit looks excellent. I would however never get one done.

These models are just the right scale to bring in the house without marital chafing or flak.

Hello everybody,
 
several rounds of sanding, putty, sanding, primering, putty,..... later - it is done. The surface is smooth and ready to continue.
 
Next step will be the torpedotuebes and the new rivets at the bow where I lost them during the sanding process... then I will take care of the display.

Hello everybody,
 
the hull is done, sanded and smooth now. The riverts at the bow were added and secured with a layer clear coat.
 
The ship will get a white wooden base with two feed made of aluminium pipe, cut already, now sanding it in the shape of the hull next.

Hello alltogether,
 
some progress here .... added some details on the maindeck .... at the bridge section and the other parts of the structure.
 
Added some etched parts of the kit and Eduard, plus parts made of 3D-printing which have great details and are much better than the parts of the kit.
 
Some wiring and further small parts will be added on the walls of the structure - otherwise it would be very "empty" here :)

Love what you do, Michael.  I always look forward to your updates.

Seems a bit out of alignment.  No criticism.  Just an observation.

 

Sincerely,

Mark
