AK47 Winter Quarters [8]

I spent about an hour last night assembling the Type XXIII  1/144th scale submarine kit, which was a simple matter of cutting down the two hull halves then gluing them together before sanding them to an even keel. After that, all I had to do was add a few small bits like the hatch, rudder, periscope and schnorkel. Easy. I superglued the hull to a base made out of 2mm pastic card then undercoated it in Halfords matt black.

I'm planning to get it painted up today along with the three resin landing craft. This will complete the naval force for the AK47 project for the moment, although there may be some rubber dinghies for a submarine inserted shore landing party if I can find some suitable models. I also hopr to get some more of the bases washed over in Vallejo English Uniform, if I can squeeze them in.
