This is the next model to turn my hand to. Scratch built three S-100 E-boats using this 1:100 scale papermodel as a template... :confused1:


Could you scan/photocopy the original copies and then when you reprint use a scale of 68% if working at 1:148 or 63% if working at 1:160. From my reading on the web this should change the scale to a suitable one for you?

Started on the E-Boat hulls this week and wasn't very successful...  :(. Net result is not a lot of visual progress apart from a bit if tidying up.

The 'not so good' E-Boat hulls can be seen in the pics. One is moored against the barge being refueled, while the other two hold station mid-river

Frustrated at the lack of progress on the E-boats, I turned my hand to rolling stock last night.
This is part of the Panther Company Train. 5No. Vampir Panthers Tanks (yes, Vampir - go Google it...) on flat beds. These will be accompanied by a SdKfz.251/20 Owl, 3No. SdKfz.251/21 Falke  and 3No. SdKfz.251/21.

Lovely models of Panthers - what a great tank that was.

Another slow week, mostly due to working out how to increase the number of storage siding at the western end of the layout without increasing the baseboard size. Still not got it fully worked out...  :confused1:

Anyway, in between all that head-scratching I did get a bit of scenery done. Most notable the river backs and green stuff on the east bank.



Also got the barge painted ready for weathering... :D

A bit more work on the west back abutment today. It's not far off being ready for painting, then fitting to the layout before any more track can be laid.

BR44 hauling a train of superheavy tanks pauses for a moment before being given clearance to cross the bridge.

After what seems like an eternity I've finally get the west back abutment finished and ready for painting. Soon have it installed and track laid on it. And then I can crack on with the next baseboard section.  :D

As Michael says, "impressive modelling".
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.
