Swedish submarine HMS Södermanland.

After finishing the HMS Gotland in 1/350 from OKB Grigorov I started a search for the other Swedish submarine that have been made as a model. it is HMS Västergötland from Sea Wolf. It took me a couple of years but finally I got one.
(Model finished 2016)

Two of the submarines in the Västergötland class got modified with Stirling engines and I wanted to build one. I was lucky to find a second kit and could start on one. Just like the real submarine I cut it in half and added a piece in between. I found a plastic tube in the right size and added some plastic card.

This conversion fought me. After all the work with putty and sanding was done I managed to break it so I had to glue it together again and start all over.

To finish it I had to make a similar propeller as on the HMS Gotland. (I made it from plastic card and the tip of an aircraft missile).

HMS Södermanland is named after the province Södermanland in Sweden.
