I went to Al's Hobby in Elmhurst IL last nite. They had one in the window.

Per my previous post, I'm not really a ship guy. But the more I see of this kit on the online review sites, the more I think I'll be "sneaking" one into the house before the summer is over ("sneaking" being put in quotes because I have no idea how I'm going to hide a kit of this size in my stash of 1/72 airplane kits).
Not a ship guy either, but after the 1/72nd scale S-Boote last year, I had to give the U-Boat a try. The U-boat is going together easier than the S-Boote. Now I need someone to put out an American WWII Fleet Boat
For the past few years I have wanted to buy a boat despite very serious misgivings from the missus. Nothing huge, just a nice 18-20 footer, inboard-outboard engine, good runabout and skiboat. Here's the plan (inspired by the car suggestion):
I purchase the U-boat, and then go home one night and say "honey, guess what? I bought a BOAT!!!". She'll undoubtedly go supercritical in nanoseconds flat, but then I can say "...not a "boat", a model kit of a submarine". She'll be so relieved that my "boat" isn't being towed behind the pickup truck that she'll probably let me park the U-boat kit on the dining room table for weeks (so that I can inspect the parts/instructions/decals)!
