Superb work indeed.

I love the lighting.

What a jump in scales for Kostas from 1/700 to 1/72.

Thanks for posting this Todd.

Cheers

Boy that's a beautiful build! I remember when I was in my U-boat phase, I tried to do this using the Combat Models 1/72 vac kit, but that kit broke my spirit, and it never happened LOL! Models have sure come a long way since then.

I would say the old vac kit could break the spirit! Other than needing a few upgrades, the Revell U-boats are fantastic base models...just huge! Kastas just makes it all look easy!

Really amazing work. These are not easy kits to make modern.
