Steve Neill just finished out this nice example of a Gato kit.
This is another one where we both worked on it (but mostly Steve).
Last couple of pictures are actually before weathering.
I thought the weld lines were a little out of scale,so I removed them, and smoothed out the prop guard locations. Steve's solution was to represent the weld lines in the finishing of the weathering stage of paint.
Nicely done Steve!

You can get all the stuff you need for one from Caswell i think.
Thanks Steve, I see a Gato with a Big Dave cylinder on the subswap.
Just waiting for my income tax refund. Hopefully for me I get it.
But if someone beats me to the bunch, thats the price of putting your son through college on a pension.
I think the Sub Gods may smile on me...after being told one Seaview is good, get another sub....I started looking and it was the size and the type of sub that attracted me to this boat. Really excellent time to be getting into the hobby....man am I jacked.
