    Happy new year to you all,

    This is a long term build over 10 years now,bought this from Bob back in 2003 and life got in the way.
    I normally build plastic armour models but having family who served in the submarine service I've an interest
    in these things with my favorite being the VIIC U boat.

    I have built a Darnell  VIIC but did not finish it, it got sold. I then bought the Eden Ohio class boat and
    ran her a few times before she went into storage and then being sold off. No pictures I'm afraid, over time they got lost.
    Anyway with the proceeds from the sales of two boats I bought the OTW VIIC and ten years later here is where I'm at.

    This sub is on my list.
    One of the best models.
    Can you show us a photo of the WTC?
    I have the WTC used in the OTW Type XXIII that I am planning to use in my USS Holland.
