    I assembled this Revell 1/72 scale kit about two years ago.

    Nice job MartinπŸ‘

    Keep a good lookout though -
    I'll be sending HMS Hotspur after it! πŸ˜‰
    Seen here alongside a 'captured' Type 1A U-Boat, U25.
    cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi Doug,
    Both excellent models.
    Did you make the crewmen?

    Hi Martin,
    ThanksπŸ˜€ Pics are a few years old. Both models are sadly in need of refits now.
    U25 is functional but the top half, deck and conning tower etc, had an unexpected collision in the work shop dry dock - with the floor 😭
    Hotspur was gutted a few years ago to renovate the hull. Intention is to modernise the electronics and fit an Action Electronics dual ESC with rudder mixer to improve the 'cornering' of such a long narrow hull. Crewmen were sort of made by meπŸ˜‰
    I shanghaied them from some ancient Airfix 8th Army and Afrika Corps 1/72 soldiers I used on the backyard battlefield as a kid. Modified some for their new roles; e.g. the guys with mine detectors were given brooms to scrub the decks instead! The ones climbing ladders were originally crawling with rifles in their right hands. Cap'n on the bridge is actually an Afrika Corp tank commander!
    I have some new crew for U25, one of them seems to be a bit peed off with his posting 😁
    Guess I'll have to pull my finger out and put all this 'stuff' in a Blog or Harbour or summat!!
    Doug 😎

    Hi Doug,
    That crewmen must be one of the Guys that you see at the start of Das Boot film when the captain is being driven down the road!
