Last I heard they were going all CGI for the outside shots.

Okay.  Thought I'd put it out there, anyway.  After they see this, they might change their mind.

There's also a guy on the subsim forum that can buy the model kit ($96.00) and essentially do the same work as the guy on Craig's List.

Thanks Mark, they have already made their own model and for out side shots they are going to do them on board also, they are going to shot with the camera low aimed up to miss the hand rails and will mainly be of the bridge and forward guns. They may use the model for depth charge scenes.
