I've finished one

It's the AFV Club 1/350 1941 USS Gato, finished with Lifecolor paints and AK 'Naval' washes.

A name plate is still to be obtained and will go in the bottom left corner once it arrives.

Like the subtle weathering effect.

Took me 3 revists before I noticed the torpedo!

Thank you Michael, as the AFV club kits come with torpedoes I decided to include one on each base and I should have enough for even the none AFV club kits. The American, German and Japanese kit torpedoes are different so it will give an indication of the primary weapon for each of the subs.
