Operation Drumbeat (Paukenschlag) U-Boat Type IX-C by Hobby Boss in 1/350th scale. 77 hours to complete. This is my first U-Boat diorama. The first U-Boat kit I built was the old Aurora one in 1967, still have it. Notes on construction. After carving the oceans surface from foam, rocks are pressed into the foam for texture. Small bits of Evergreen plastics were used to add details missing from the kits guns. They are very basic. The wake is hand painted from a photo. The name plate was created in Photoshop , printed as a photo, cut and glued to the base.
