Model kit as offered by AMT

Yellow Submarine DSC_0704640x427

Want to build this as a real ship model not the bathtub toy as designed by AMT. Here are all the parts from the box.

Yellow Submarine DSC_0706640x427

Lots of filling required

Yellow Submarine DSC_0813640x427

Conning tower has four periscopes

Yellow Submarine DSC_0868640x427

Had to eliminate the crank and wheels and fill in the air holes and seal up side hatches.

Going to use 1-Shot lettering enamels to brush paint my sub. Had to carefully draw the color div. lines. Found an appropriate base and countersunk some holes for the aluminum support tubes.

Almost finished.

Decals on, were done. Now Skid will sing his favorite song " WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE" , ..........................I cant hear you!

Cheers Eh!

It's called an 'ear worm' Colin and it's going to annoy the hell out of you!!!  Yellow Submarine 1792231099



It could be a good subject for a CB..... build it any way except stock!! Could prove very interesting!!!

Summer of '66, if this flawed memory works. Movie came later. Very nice work and highly prized as a collectible. Clean build and great paint work!

Cool! As HUGE Beatles fan, I note they don't get a mention on the box, but the characters are there.
