USS Nautilus -- 90 degrees north
« on: August 15, 2019, 12:46:26 PM »
I know you are not keen on subs Haddock but have had this in the stash for a while and decided to just get on with it.
Now can you figure out what I am going to do with the 3 figures ?????

All 5 parts of the hull fastened together - next a good clean up and some filler.
Don't need to bother cleaning up the bottom of the hull as that will go with the figures - are you confused  ?????   HoHoHo

More bits and bobs added to the hull - before any of you say I have not filled in round the ford torpedo tubes - you will not see them when the model is in situation.

Last clue from left to right  - a polar bear, a red and white striped pole, a man in a long red coat with white fur trim and an inanimate child made object that makes your hands cold. 
Now put that together with USS Nautilus - what was she the first to do ????

A base made for Nautilus and a hole hacked into the foam to sit her down - should be about the correct level when the surface has had some filler put on it.

Correct Haddock - but this time they have crashed through the ice and are meeting Father Christmas and a snowman -- Before you say it YES I should get out more.
