S-100 Schnellboot

"MSW crew-mate Ed Sarao (liberator) sends in a dazzling display of his build of Italeri Models 1/35 scale, S-100 Schnellboot, in this "On Display" feature!"

This build took me almost a year to complete, assembly was the easy part..researching and adding aftermarkets is the hard part.... I waited for Italeri to release the crew..luckily a friend from the US gave me the crew just in time.

I then found out the availability of the after market parts a few months later, which are a bit expensive but worth the ordering. I followed the painting scheme on the instruction sheet, then added detailing and weathering.

The spent shells are made of hair brush bristle and copper wire..not sure if the guns just spit out the shells and scattered all over the deck, but probably yes..during operations you have no time to put containers on the deck for them!

The completed model in 1/35 scale is quite big.. so big that I had to build a bigger matt blue background to shoot the images at!

Edit. Note-Check out Ed's Build Log here at MSW!
