OK, the weekend wasn’t a complete waste as far as modeling is concerned.  I am building the Fujimi 1/350th scale Maru-yu 1001 submarine for a review for IPMS/USA.  I got a little work done on it, mostly relating to using Mr. Surfacer to fill the gaps where the deck meets the hull.

I’ve found precious little on this sub.  They were built by the Japanese Army (yes, Army) to supply cut off garrisons.  Here is one of the few photos I’ve found.
