Cleaning out some old boxes and found this from back in the day. Around 1995 I think. All scratchbuilt.
Want to see more? I want to check before I scan all these pics as it's a lot of brain power that I don't have much of any more.

That's incredible. Do you still have it somewhere? And all scratch built... Unbelievable. Except I wouldn't put it past you! Love it.

Hey Jerry,

I knew you were an outstanding figure modeler, but I had no idea how good of a scratchbuilder you are. A little worried to see so much naval stuff from a paratrooper, but I guess ships might be a diversion from the hooah stuff.

This is outstanding and quite impressive. Thanks for showing us your older projects.

Cheers,
James

I can only concur with James! Thanks for digging up these older projects and let us be part of your "earlier" work!

Highly impressive to say the least! Superb scratchbuild and (yet again) brilliant "human factor"!!

You are the man Sir!!! Big congratulations!!

Cheers

Romain

P.S.: and who says a paratrooper is not allowed to build ships!!

Love this U-Boat scene- top class scratchbuilding Jerry- it really looks the part and it is nicely populated with figures.

Thanks Guys,means a lot to read all of your nice comments. I know all of that stuff on the conning tower plus the snorkel would have been retracted or stowed but I wanted to show all of it. Artistic license I suppose.

One of my antique builds (from the mid 90s). Hans may find it interesting. it is supposed to be a Type IX C. I think. It has been a while.

Keep it those pics in a safe place! That U-boat is a masterpiece, can't believe it's scratch built. Amazing!

That sub looks great! My late German grandmother worked in Mannheim Germany at the factory that made the diesel-electric motors that went in the U-Boats.
