Totally Awesome Build and Display!

It kinda reminds me of the USS Bowfin, at the Pearl Harbor Submarine Museum.

Very nice build!

Thanks Steve. I now wish I had used brass tube to secure the sub to the case... There is way too much bounce when moving it, and where the periscope attaches to the top of the display keeps de-bonding. Maybe someday I will switch the styrene tube for a brass one.

Right now the display is sitting on it's back since the periscope broke it's bond and the styrene tube was starting to bend slightly.

Kevin, this is a true work of art. I cant see the styrene tube that you mentiones and was going to ask how it is suspended.

You can actually see the tube in pic #2, it attaches to the back of the case (green side).
