Amazing. Photographing in the water like that, I'd swear that it was real! Makes me want to get an aquarium!

Bob.....

They're not called "Aquariums", .... they are .... Three Dimensional U-Boat Display Tanks.....with fish.

Very nice!
My only grip -you can call me "picky"- is that the research sub (Shinkai 6500) is not just a "generic" one: it is one of the most capable deep sea research subs in the world and it is in 1/144 while the Uboat is in 1/72...
Sorry but I couldn't help noticing it! I don't know you but I'm a little bit obssesed with subs :roll:

...and the modeling of the fish is also very well done. They look quite lifelike. :lol: :lol:

Very realistic, visibility in the tnak is a bit too good for my liking. I also looked on the llink to the Bismark, i remeber seeing a programme about this, but cant remeber if it finished up right way up or not? i know some main guns fell off, and its the weight of the guns which normally make battleships hit the dirt upside down.
