ICM SEEHUND U-BOAT TYPE XXVIIB (LATE) 1/72.
Due to Christmas and family commitments, I have had bugger all time to paint anything.So I will show you a long term project that is getting closer to the top of the "to do list".
I saw a picture of a model Seehund on a timber frame being worked on and wanted to expand on that idea.
The ICM Seehund kit is a dream kit apart from the torpedo props which is covered in flash.
I built the kit in well under an hour.You get two options to build the early and late version in the same box.They sell the two different version separately but are the same spruces inside both boxes.The only difference is the rudders and side tanks,so don't worry if you can't get either box two of the same will kit will do both versions.
I have two seeehunds but cocked up the spotted cammo scheme on the second early version and I am going to have to strip it back some how.
The Airfix NATO pilot is there just for scale!!!!!
These are photos of before weathering and after just to give an idea of what I did with it,I am sure that people could do a hell of a lot better.
