    I am completely blown away by this whole thread. Every image raises the bar higher. After this and the POTW helicopter thread, I feel like hanging it up and finding a different hobby. Or at least it makes me see what kind of magic can be accomplished with paper, talent and patience. This is truly inspirational stuff.

    Add me to your list of people who will be buying this model. WOW!

    Even though there is no color, there is a ton of character! Beautiful, I tell you, just beautiful!:-D

    I love that hatch! You are one heck of a designer and builder!
    Very impressive model, K!!!8)

    Here's more energy kooklik, :) This is one of the best builds I have seen.
    IMHO you could build this design from any material. I can't wait to try it myself. :)

    ibid for me Russell, this model would look fantastic just in white card with black highlighting.

    For your information Kooklik, I've learnt more about the construction of these boats than I had really thought about before.:) :) :) The pictures you've taken of your model are just so enlightening.

    More energy to you.

    Hi Rich and all

    This Beta is more than 80% complete. There's still have many things to do. Debugging and Assembly instruction making. Even B/W version may take 1-2 months from now. I have no experience in paper model design so the kit still have alot of bugs. I intend to issue the kit carefully so it may take long time.
    And thanks to all who wants to purchase my first design kit. I'll do it best worth for your waiting.
    Best Regards

    May I suggest some kind of stepped release?

    A large kit released as 2 or 3 sections would kick off the receipt of money sooner...

    Also give us decent time to start the build..

    But Ill wait patiently however you release it

    Take your time Kooklik, the last thing we want is a rushed released of a fantastic model with many bugs. I know people would rather wait for you to debug it and make it perfect than release a really buggy and non-fitting model.

    more 2 equipments added control room periscope and UZO binoculars. The parts are going smaller and smaller but still buildable without microscope. :grin:
