Sir,

Those are two very interesting and very good builds. Well done, well done.

I might have someone do that conversion to my Revell S-100 which was done OOB for me by my Uncle.

Thank you for the inspiration ...

Hello Pawel,

excellent scratchbuild, I would be very much interesested when you start your new project, one of the first boats S1 - S28 type boats, with the torpedo tube located open on the foredeck. I have worked a little on the pneumatic mechanism to release the torpedos, which I put on youtube. I made two perspectives one from the rear, the second one from the front. The port torpedo alread includes a AAA battery, but the torpedo is still flying. Now it will be time to make the torpedo work.

Have fun

Hello Pawel,

I don't think it will be two heavy, where possible I was always using 4,3 g servos, the main weight is still with the engines and the accu.

But I have your concern on the radar, if two haevy, there will be two modes:

Sieghtseeing with all functions and
E-Boat with speed, weapons and sound, (no torpedos, no smoekscreen).

Keep up the excellent work Italeri will get jealous.

kind reagrds

Pawel

Have you done any research on the S 80?

Did I miss the install of the inside of the Hull; motors etc. ?

When I get my keel and frames done on my S 81 I will send you some photo

Hey Pawel, This is absolutly amazing work. Modelers like you are an insperation to all of us to push ourselves and see where we can go. The working search light just blew me away also. I think my landing crafts are going to need an escort. .
Have been following your build and really enjoy your work.

Hello Pawel,

Here's the link to "Asse zur See" for you:
http://www.archive.org/details/1943-Asse-zur-See


If you recall, I mentioned to you earlier being a trapdoor on the open bridge.
Watch from 2 min 45 to 2 min 52. You'll clearly see that trapdoor twice used to communicate in between chartroom and open bridge.

Hope it helps better this time.

Robert

ps: in case you wouldn't get directly to the video as I just experienced it, type in 'Asse zur See' in the "Search" field.

Yes, I have to agree, wonderful work Pawel!

I am so tempted to get one myself. However my wife would strongly object.
