a resin kit in 1/350 scale.



I have built the Swedish submarine HMS Gotland.



Resin kits is not something that I enjoy building but this was a very nice kit.



For some reason  I have problems finishing ship models. I have several that is started but that I haven't touched for years. But this build was quick.



Box and content.


It isn't large. A 1/700 version could almost hide in the paint jar.



Even though it is a very nice kit I decided to add some details.
There are some transparent panels in the sail. The two on the sides has the red and green navigation lights and i will probably just fill them with Kristal Kleer. The rear one I cut up and filled with super glue that I sanded to the right shape. Hopefully it will look better than a painted panel. I also built a bulge at the rear of the sail where three small lights are housed.

I am trying to fix my posts after Photobucket destroyed the Internet. For some reason I had to  split the post.



In the front of the sail I drilled a small hole that I've seen on pictures. I have no idea what it is.

I also decided to add periscope and antennas so I drilled holes for them.


Time to paint.
First a grey with a darker grey wash to get some shade differences.


Then a darker grey with a dusting of Nato Black.


Some black on the nose and the top of the sail to finish it. After the nervous removal of masking tape I could to my relief find that it wasn't a disaster.
