The weathering is especially effective--submarines are a real challenge!

Hello Serhan

Yes, I like it! As you (and most of you) know, I have a passion for submarines and these IJN subs, just make me want a get one from the stash!!!
I like your subtle weathering, the rigging is good, although the cage aerials look a bit over-scale comparing with the rest of it - but this is a "small scale" model and photography can be very unforgiving to us, modelers.

Congratulations Serhan, on another beautiful IJN Subject!
