:(
Sorry Leelan but this is just about the worst looking Seaview I have ever seen, even the Polar lights offering is marginally better looking.
There are too many things wrong with it .

:( Yeah, I noticed that just after I posted to the Board. I will try not to be so quick next time.

Why would anyone paint the underside black! Does this guy have no understanding of countershading? Anti-foul red oxide I could understand - that would be a natural mistake to make given real subs' paint jobs. But black?

I have the Monsters in Motion kit still in the box. No room to display it yet. And I am wondering how to fix the lower tail fins. They are canted and not horizontal as they should be.

Leelan you might try switching the right pumpjet fairing with the left side or cut the fins off and re attach at a right angle too the keel, the fins are a gradual taper but they are horizontal and not canted down
