The man is unquestionably the premier designer/artist of papercraft.
Just managed to get a Corgi 1/32 P51 Mustang off of Ebay Old Crow complete with figures,I tell you all this because I'm just running out of words to describe how incredible this submarine is turning out!
Work starts on the Coning Tower
The bulk of the film's $15 million budget was spent on constructing U-boats. Specifications for the original Type VII-C U-boat were found at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. The plans were taken to the original builder of the subs, who was commissioned to build a full-sized, sea-going replica, their first such assignment since the war ended. A second full-sized model was built for interior filming.
I second that statment :thumb::thumb:
Three scale models were built for special effects work. The first, a 35 foot remote controlled model, could sail in high seas and dive; the other two, 18 feet and 8 feet in length, were used for underwater shots. Scale models of tankers, destroyers and other ships were also built to complete the armada.
for any sequel they will just download this beauty.
I have been wathing this for such a long time.....totaly amazing work he is truly the master. I can not wait.
sorry finger studder and double post
I second that statment! :mrgreen:
More conning tower.
Models built for Das Boot were also used in Raiders of the lost Ark.
Another beautiful model from UHU. This will be a hell of a challange for most builders, looks really detailed.
It almost looks functional!
I think that's pretty much the only boundary in paper modelling left for UHU02 to break.
Thank you from Japan
Oh my! That is one stunning Conning Tower!!:goldcup:
WOW....that is quite awesome! The deck looks very realistic in those views! That detail in the last view is incredible!
Thank you UHU02 it's nice to see you post here again.
More pictures of the amazing conning tower assembly.
While shooting scale models in the Northern Sea, filming was disturbed by doves landing on the submarine.
The full-scale model was little more than a hollow shell with an engine, and could be used only in calm waters. While it was being filmed in rougher weather, it cracked in two and sank. It was later recovered, patched with wood planks and used for the final shots.
Was looking at enlarged views of the above photos and those railings especially look very good. Those are difficult to model at this scale and he accomplished that very well indeed!
Nothing can describe the awesomeness... NOTHING!
The railings, the handrail, these details are incredible. It's nice to see the hand that makes the work. You can tell a lot by looking at someone's hands. The picture is a good way of learning how the hands of a Master craftsman work. Exceptional!
