Dear Modelers this is the reproduction of the S38 Karlotte.The Karlotte is nearly finished, the rivetbands for the Pilothouse are missing. It took a while to collect enough evidences on the center window. Singnalpost and radar are already done and are on the lft side. The Karlotte ind the Pilothouase will be printed in 3D resin printer.







kind regards

Micha,

Excellent build you have there. The torpedo is awesome! You have to add figures to top this build off with.

Hello everybody.

The sea mines of Schatton Modell are finished. These resin mines are wonderful updates for the S-Boat.

The rails for the mines are made of evergreen plastic profiles, still unpainted.

Also the dinghy is a resin model with photo etched details on it.

Hello everybody,

I made the wooden optics with different oil colors and a stiff brush, on a base paint in beige colors.
Metal colors Iron and Brass were used for the details ...
All this area remains good visible through the open doors left and right and the huge windows...

Hello everybody,

Vallejo's black primer as base coat, the further colors airbrushed only in thin, not covering layers to keep the black base as shadow color.

Paints used next:

Schnellbootweiß (S-Boat white): Insignia White + Light Grey
Under water: Red/Brown
Main Deck: Dark grey
Stripes: White & Red

All these paints are of Mission Models.


Some first damages on the red stripes added already, some further scratches and damages on the other areas follow, but first some further details brush painted all around the ship.... then oil color washs ...












Cheers
Micha

very nice progress Michael, with a lot of details, thank you for buying my products from Shapeways. IMHO especially the Torpedotargeting computer and the Torpeodtube ends benefit from more details.

But Michael what is the metal plate in the middle of the Targeting computer?

Thanks Al,
Ok, so I have seen many pictures with the cover attached since I posted that question
but then, were did they put the 2cm and its mount...was it stored below deck?
I figure kind of heavy for a couple of crew members to move.

Cheers,
Joe



I believe the gun mount could unlocked, and swung down into the tub. They probably would remove the barrel. Al

Excellent work....those extra details will really pay off in the end!

Just curious, what is that circular disc behind the 2cm gun position as
seen in the posted photo of the finished model?
Cheers,
Joe




That's the foul-weather cover for the gun tub. Al
