She looks very good on the water. A credit to you. Do you have any more photos of her? I am thinking closeups of the detail..

She's certainly a lovely looking model and not many people go the scratch build route with this subject as there are so many kits available.  Nice level of detail and a good hull shape.

She does seem to sit a little on the low side in the water so I guess she is a fair weather model!  Nothing wrong with that though, my U-Boat is definately fair weather and having the pond to itself before I would consider putting it out there!!

 O0 your right it does sit low in the water. even lower with the new gel batteries (see photo) but it was going far toooooooooo faaaaaaaaast waiting for slower motors to arrive.it does look more realistic low in the water,ive had to seal the deck with draught tape because she does ship water over the bow at speed but none inside boat and it has seen rough water (jet ski wake) and heavy wind (check vid link) but if it gets any lower i will call it u boot bismarck lol.
