I love Das Boot! I forgot so many little things in that film. On to the build!
I cut the stern off today to rotate it to port.
Then I measured, checked alignment by eye, and double checked with a level.
Then after some CA glue, the tail is back on, and strait as an arrow! Finally, after 2 years of it driving me nuts it is fixed.
Tomorrow I plan on fiberglassing the stern on to make it permanent. Since I cut the stern off with a fine razor saw, there is almost no gap left! I will bridge the gap with some CA and sand it down.
