Great build you got going here. I'll be watching this thread very closely. Might try to make my own Alfa someday although in a much smaller scale like 1/96 (to cut down on fiberglass and resin cost). BTW, can you show how you were able to scribe the torpedo doors on the curved bow.
Thanks redboat! to be honest with you, i took a good long look at my plans and these two photographs
and i drew them out in pencil multiple times until i got the shape to match the photographs. then i marked them in sharpie and scribed them. sorry, i didnt take photos of that process.... as for costs so far, i might have $70-80 dollars in this between the bondo, fiberglass and foam plug. i thought of going 1/96th, but i felt like the hull would be too small inside for what i wanted to do with this sub. even in 1/72nd scale, it seems cramped compared to that monster IXD2 im building.
