By my calculations that is around 100mm long.

Wow.

Good job.

 :thumbsup:
Close, 105mm. Good eye, Fred.

Nice work.

1/700 subs are tiny.  I remember buying my first few modern subs (SkyWave @1980) and being a bit disappointed how small they were, and cost per parts count was quite high. You could build one in about 4 minutes....if you didn't glue the periscopes mast to your fingers....

I just wonder where it would be operated. Much of the likely operational area is pretty shallow, especially the Archipelago Sea. So, craft with less draught are mainly used above the surface too.
