Present WIP on the Revell 1/72 S-100 class boat (German WW2 E boat).

Length of this kit is 48,6cm.

Paints used are Vallejo Model Color Tan Earth for the wood parts, Vallejo Model Air White Grey for the sides and superstructures, Vallejo Model Air AMT-11 Blue Grey for the decking, Vallejo Model Air German Grey for the lower hull, Vallejo Model Color Bronze for the propellers (not yet installed) and a mixture of Vallejo Model Color Saddle Brown & Natural Steel in 70% to 30% for the anchor and the tops of the boats gaff hooks.
The Model Air Colors were air brushed on the rest are hairy stick painted. Will be using the Vallejo Air White Grey with a brush to do touch ups once parts are glued in place.

Still to be done are make the name decals 'Lang' for either side of the armoured bridge and the symbol + shooting star decal for the stern like those in the pics as well as a copy of the E boat badge issued to crew.
Then apply a matt clear cote.
I might make a few depth charges to put on one of the rails. For those I will turn down a piece of wood dowel to the right diameter and paint a grey colour.
