The real worry is where do I park them when finished - I'll have both
Type VII variants and that big GATO to deal with...and that thing is
HUGE. After I finally I saw one in the box I had to have it...
Clamps and liquid cement are your best friends. Since I've discovered
Berna Assemblers I seldom have to do much (if any) filling - just finish
Speaking of sanding...I actually started work on U-Boat #1 today. Just
getting some parts cut and fit. The hard work is going to com in
opening up all those flood holes...and I plan to open up the deck grates
as well. I figure I can do it all be sanding the back sides of the
parts. Where'd I put that elbow grease?..
My suggestion FWIW is to mount them on the wall above a doorway. Build
some sort of cradle rig to hold them that makes them easy to move to a
lower level for guest to appreciate, then return them to higher ground
and protection. Just a thought.
I know one will go on my mantle...I think another will end up above my
desk at work. I plan to make "dry dock" sorts of bases for them all -
resting on/propped up by timbers.
It's the third one I'm blanking on...I've got a bookcase headboard on my
bed. Enough space in the long cubbies for a U-boat. The Gato would
have to go on top.
