Also you can tell the difference by the side of the Karlotte where it transitions to the deck. S-100 has a curved side and the S-38 armored have it squared like your picture..

Hello Randal,

I noticed this on Monday this week, which is slowing me down a bit. 3D printing cost for the wheelhouse and the superstructure easily match the price of a complete model. To this end I wait for the model to become available and assess during the build the missing details or shortcomings for the model.

Further I started to decouple the parts of my S18 type boat and will offer undetailed parts in strong flexible (eg. kitchtenoof, superstructure and wheelhouse, Torpedotubes) while offering detailed parts set on the other hand. This should make the whole model more affordable and fun to build but it also takes some time for decoupling and designing the right mounts for the detailed parts.

But building such models newer be a sprint and the side shields and other parts can be reused for an S26 type boat user by my favorite 3rd Schneellbootflotille in the Mediterranean Sea.

Bis denne

Hi All,
Please excuse this question if it has been asked / answered somewhere in the previous 57 pages, but as I can get any if the pictures from the 1st 15 pages to open, I was wondering if anyone had any photos of where all the bilge pump holes go in the hull??
Cheers Mike

it really is seem like good details with some left overs from the previous S100 model but also enhancements. The rivets on the side and wheelhouse look great to me - Waiting for it to become available for preorder
