Nice work! I like the use of a light gray on the U47 - otherwise the boat and weathering would simply have vanished in the sea .. Cheers/jan

Amazing realism in this scale. Delightful as always to see another work of Mr Katseas. The flyhawk Scharnhorst kit must be better than Lionroar's one then?

It's always a treat to see a diorama with a real story built in. The only way to top off this magnificent example would be to replicate it in 1:72! --Karl
