Only a few months late to the party, but WOW!!! I absolutely have loved this submarine since the mid-1970s when US television accidentally started airing UFO. Including the Eagle, this is by far the best model Gerry Anderson's people have ever created. It's so frakking simple and elegant, and looks completely functional. Top notch work, man!

Well I did start the paint job on the 5 footer but as I am now doing a 6 foot one I must admit to totally losing interest in finishing it off, This is as it is now.

Started on the pinstriping, still lots more to do. When I say pinstriping I mean I mask and spray each line. Sad I know but better than tape.

As always, another amazing model and I think the weathering looks great.
It certainly moves quckly through the water.
The swans don't appear bothered at all - they must see a lot of 5' Skydivers!!
