I have no room for them, but a nice model of a U-boat would look cool sitting atop my monitor.

U-boat.net is an Aladins cave for all things related to U-boats as the web title suggests including models..below is a link, look at these beautiful pics of a type XXI model.

speaking for myself about models though, I would prefer to have some nice clear, well defined wallpaper images on my PC.

all stop !

RedTerex, Thankyou for these links. (I'm a link saver for anything uboat related.) Im always buying models. I like the ones where you can see inside detail where you can go as far as installing painted torpedos.

WOW those look awsome! I really appreciate these links. Im a collector of boat/ship models. I have 2 Blue devel destroyers Fletcher class 3' long and made them radio controlled with little modifications. Would be cool to have a uboat in a huge aquadic aquarium where you can see through the glass and pilot the uboat around. I had a cheesy sub when I was a kid that was operated with a wire. Remeber when you could get for free in Lucky Chams cerial a free baking soda operated sub? Dont ever know what happened to that long lost treasure when I was a kid (my friend might of stole it) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I have a few other links to Sub Sites etc and here is a good one based on modern Submarines, they are fantastic !

www.fxmodels.com/submodels.shtml (http://www.fxmodels.com/submodels.shtml)

If you click on an individual pic of a Sub another page opens up with some awesome close-up pics of the model in question. They are realy great models and look so realistic.

and scroll down to the 3rd picture on this site (link below) and check out that U-boat model, best working model I have ever seen !

www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=185299 (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=185299)

then check out the next pic down on the same page of the model at periscope depth LOL...awesome !

ahead full !

RedTerex thankyou for these links. These subs remind me of the sub sunk in the movie Abyss. ( another excellent movie I have enjoyed) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

'Abyss' was Ed Harris at his very best.

I was intrigued when Ed had to ' breath' fluid before descending down 100's upon 100's of feet to the sea floor !

The accent on water pressure at great depths was well photographed and atmospericaly terrific, also this film had one of the scariest moments ever filmed..for me anyway ...and that was the scene when Ed and the woman was trapped in the submersible and it was slowly filling up with water and one of them had to drown...frightening stuff I can tell you.

Its been fun posting the links about sub models, I'm cool about models..so not a problem there and If I stumble upon any others I will be glad to post em up for you.

Dive, Dive, Dive, aircraft spotted !

I got a little choked up during that tense scene. Was sad to see his wife drown. The guy who rammed them to get them in that situation made me mad. Was good that he was able to bring her back to life. I liked the scenes of the Aliens threatening the shores all over the world with a 1000' wave of water and when the alien ship came from under them at impossible speeds then when it surfaced it drydocked all the ships. Was a great movie. I have to see it again. I got the Directors cut of it on DVD. Thankyou RedTerex. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
