Jeff, Your boat is still by far the best looking type IX out there.Love the weathering.Wish I could find the time to finish mine. Brought it to last years regatta in Colorado anyway. It's behind my type VII. A late war IX with the cut back deck,the U-858. My vote has been and will always be for the larger boats. The way they look and operate on the water. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Your friend Ted.

hey Ted,
Thanks alot, and glad to hear from you. The last time I saw you was at the SanFransisco Regatta 3 weeks after 9-11, You still have the best running type VII I have ever seen. Good luck with your type IV. Mine took 2 years to build and I mean 2 full years,
I was off work one summer and It took 3 weeks to make the deck working on it 4-6hrs a day. But I agree with you the larger boats look better in good and bad seas......... Jeff J.

Tom,

Yes! We have a 1/48th scale Gato in the works, a 1/32nd scale WWII SHCH(Pike) Russian WWII fleet boat (72.25"), a 1/32nd Scale WWII Russian M class Coastal boat (42"), A 1/32nd Scale Type IIB (A combined LaRue & Thor effort), A rekit of the 1/35th Scale Marlin (Old SubTech), 1/72nd Scale 571, 1/72nd Scale Skate, 1/72nd Victor III, 1/48th American S-25. The 571, PIKE, and Marlin are all very close to release. They will all be 2011 releases.

We are tinkering with a 3D model of a German WWII Type IXC in 1/48th as well.

Matt Munger and I are working together on a 1/32nd Type XIII for Matt to market. Hopefully that may be ready by late 2011.

Matt

Hi Matt,
That will be great to get a 1/48 Type IXC.How much longer than the XXI will it be.And should I be looking to expanding my new yard to make room for this beast.Oh,by the way did I mention that I would like to preorder this boat when ever it`s done.
