U-Boot 90 Ė Biber Mini Submarine
This is my representation of the Biber submarine, based on the example in the Imperial War Museum London.
I didnít copy the finish exactly as the original has the joint points sealed. The kit does provide 2 PE strips for this purpose but I choose to leave them off, as I believe it makes the finish look more interesting. Itís a fun build with one or two tricky areas (namely the PE) and Iíve scratch built some items which I hope add interest to the finish.
More details can be found here: Build Blog
and a walkaround here of the IWM example. Walkaround
This was my first submarine and I enjoyed the experience. A good starter kit and it would make for an interesting cut-away model if you have the time and patience.
My thanks to everyone on Shipwrights who made the build possible
