4888 Submarine Iota 01




This model is based on an idea from the instructions book. The instructions contain a lot of good ideas and this looked like a good one to start at. With one side, the front and the top visible in the one picture I thought I could manage it well enough. There was a bit visible of the backend as well; enough to give a rough idea what to do. The placement of the side thrusters however proved problematic. In the picture it was placed in a lower position that would make the underside complicated and I would not expect that from an idea in the official instructions. Putting it higher was not possible to fit it with the elements above. So I decided to compromise and lowered it one plate level. This also affected the bottom, if I wanted to keep it smooth. Fortunately I had the parts to do it so i went for it.

For most of the model I could follow the picture. I added some nice addition to spice up the backend a bit, but I had to do some improvisation to maintain symmetry. As I like my models to be constructed solidly and with a clean structure, I was unhappy about that. The result is still pleasing to look at, with a striking front.
