U-96 “Das Boot”

This is the fourth model I built, and after doing three aircraft, I was in the mood to do a warship. The big Revel 1/72 scale U-boat kit was fairly new at the time, and I was eager to see what I could do with it. The kit is absolutely fantastic.

  1. Nice work. Damn nice work.

  2. Bill, what do you mean by “the fourth model I built”, the fourth model *ever*? Hard to believe judged by what’s on display, especially the painting/weathering. Great work

  3. Very impressive painting and weathering, Bill.

  4. Good to see this one again. I have been watching Bill’s work over the years and I’d say he is basically a natural modeler with a fantastic eye for color and detail, coupled with the ability to translate that into reality. I’m looking forward to seeing more. Thanks, Bill!

  5. Thanks for the compliments!
