Italian Navy Type 212 - 1/70 scale - "Scire" Engel modellbau

Hi everyone,

Here is a link to the film I have posted on Youtube of my Engel Models Type 212 submarine "Scire". It is 1/70th scale, which is close enough to be in-line with my other 1/72 scale r/c models. You can see my H.M.S. Guernsey ( Deans Marine ) along side her in the 'harbour' at Durban Model boat club. This is a superb kit, which took me away from my next project ( the Fleetscale Type 21 in 1/72 scale ) but it was well worth it. She runs like a dream and is fairly easy to build. Out-of-the-box, if you follow the instructions, it is a brilliant kit. The ubiquitous "Das Boot" music makes up the soundtrack, but there really isn't any better submarine soundtrack is there? I managed to find some sound-bytes from an Italian TV documentary about the real "Scire" which are also in the film.

We filmed her using a "Go-Pro" camera, hence the slightly 'fish-eye' effect which is inherent in these cameras.

When I get the chance I will edit the next part of the filming we did, when I depth-charged her...in South Africa we have fire-crackers that explode underwater. Great fun..but also the reason she is currently under repair....we managed to blow a tiny pin-hole sized breach in the pressure hull.....OOOPS !

Hope you enjoy the film.
