USS Spadefish 1/100 Card Model

Postby Ober Freak » Tue Mar 25, 2014 4:08 pm

After the little dilemma on my Gato's bow with the wrong shutters for Puffer,
I went along with this kit to get the head free.

It is a relative old kit (in card model meanings) polish kit published by "Halinski", hand drawn back in '96.

I got the frames laser cut from a friend, so the hull frames went into a quick 3D puzzle without much work.
Framing took about 3 hours including drying times.

The next steps will definitely need a little more time.

Some progress on the sub of the last weeks, but had only worked 3 evenings on it.

The frames got glue taps on and the first hull parts:

The next parts towards the bow:

After these parts I ran into some issues, so I had to tear of the tabs and sand down the frames to counter the diameter addition from the tabs,
it helped a little but there are gaps remaining:

so far,
