1. The G 7 Torpedo - Length 7163 mm / Dia 533 mm (approx 23ft.7in. X 21in). At  1:48 scale it works out to 149 mm (just under 6 in.) length and 11 mm dia. This is what and how I achieved the basic structure.

Added a wooden dowel and applied two part epoxy filler. Sanded it to shape.


2. Just a loose fit to see what it is beginning to resemble.


I would appreciate if you all would suggest improvements on the build.


Regards.

Thanks Gusty!Though the rate at which I am progressing, that should be another 6 months or so. Trying to pull my socks up and get on with it. After hours and hours of sanding, the hull was sent to the neighbourhood garage for a final coat of automotive putty and finishing. They've done a rather neat job.

Thank you Sean. Work on this model is going a little slow at the moment, as I am going hell for leather on a pair of Keil Kraft Eezebilt models that I have scaled up to 28" and 31". Pictures soon on another thread. :-))
