Yes, it is going to be a kit from a new French company. Thanks for the kind words!

The upper hull is now moulded, time for the lower half. It's going to be in one piece now, no parting board. Some photos!

Here are some photos of the final product straight out of the mould, it just needs some trimming and cleaning
There are also two videos demoulding the upper and lower parts of the hull and I'm not saying by any means that that's
the proper way of doing it but I have no free space in the workshop ( I have to clean up one of these days)

Some photos of the masters of the antenas and others. The two periscopes and the all brass antena are going to stay as they are, I think they are too thin and they will brake very easily if casted in epoxy

Thank you for the kind words guys!!! :-)
I have to correct  the periscopes though, I found out they are not the right shape! Also the brass antena is way out.... I'll see what I can do about it!
