Thanks Carl, Bruce, Frank & Kevin.
Hopefully some update photo's soon.

Real life is slowing me down this week. Short of retirement, or winning the lottery, has anyone a cure for this?

Well, if not retirement or the lottery, the alternative is not good.
So, there is no real cure!

Your project is fantastic, just incase I hadn't said it before now. [:-thumbu]

Rob, your drydock looks very excellent!
Can't wait to see your U Boat finally drydocked in it!

Thanks Louis & Greg for continued interest.

Just a couple of shots to show the diorama base framing in black.

Thanks Jerry. I'm happy with it.

Have finally had a bit of spare time.
So have made the keel blocks from balsa and glued down, and painted.




And have made the caisson lock gate from styrene sheet & strips. Nothing prototypical, just industrial looking.
Just need to weather it now.

have now weathered the lock gate.
Used wet on wet technique, all applied using a sponge. About 6 colours used here.





In place.




Opposite end finished off with a piece of thin balsa. This end is intentionally left open to better view the U-boat.

Well here is what we've been waiting for.
Finally the U-boat is positioned.
I never actually intended to spend so much time on the diorama part of this build, but have really enjoyed it, and glad I did. I've certainly enjoyed trying some different weathering techniques.
