Nice work on your I 401 project Kenny. I especiallly like the figures on deck that give a sense of size to this behemouth of a sub. The second aircraft finished in its' original colors is also a nice touch.

A beautiful job on the kit, and an outstanding presentation. I hope you plan to enter it in some IPMS Shows, because that has "AWARD" written all over it.

Congratulations.


Cheers,
Mike

Hi Kenny!

Thanks for posting those pics. Which figures did you use?

Your water effects are excellent, too!
