Fantastic looking work, that is a museum piece for sure. Outstanding craftsmanship went into that build.

Your submarine diorama looks fantastic. The dry dock really displays your model well.

Thanks Mike, Carl, Bruce, Bill, Greg, Louis & Michael, for following along on my little build. I appreciate all you interest.
I certainly got my 10 bucks worth out of this model.

Looks to me you hit pay dirt with this one.

Weathering detail is really outstanding. A beautiful build all around.

Rob,

I've been searching for the past week for some photographs that I took nearly 50 years ago of the drydock in Yokosuka, Japan, The pictures were from the underside of a U.S.Aircraft Carrier. Your depiction of the drydock is fantastic! The whole diorama is perfect. Congratulations on a beautiful model.

Jim

Thanks Pete, Ted, Jerry & Jim, for following along.
As well as the modelling, I've certainly enjoyed all the research side of it too.
Being a History buff and especially interested in WWII, I found it great. Learnt lots along the way, and think others following along did also.
Now have to decide what to model next.

Somehow I missed the completion date ceremonies but I'm in on the finish at last. Very nice job Rob. With all this submarine talk I got stuck watching the 1957-1958 TV series Silent Service on YouTube. They are actual stories reenacted for a half-hour TV show. There are 39 episodes for series 1 and 2. Here's the link to S1 E1. The stories get better as they go along, less dramatic. I've been researching WWII Gato Class American subs, as you said interesting.

Thanks Frank. I look forward to seeing you do a model of the Gato Class sub.

And thanks for that Youtube link. That will keep me busy watching for months.

Rob, Australia was thick with them during WWII. I'm sure the locals were glad to see those Yanks leave port.

As the Brits said, and I'm sure us Aussies also said about the Yanks during the war.
They're Oversexed, Overpaid, and Over here.

Although, two friends of my Mums, met American servicemen based here during the 2nd War, and ended up marrying them, and lived the rest of their lives in America. I met them both in 1974, and they were very happy.
So I guess you Yanks can't be too bad.
