Swedish submarines
I had earlier built the HMS Gotland in 1/350 from OKB Grigorov and started a search for the other Swedish submarine that have been made as a model.

Image
it is HMS Västergötland from Sea Wolf. It took me a couple of yeasr but finally I got one.

Image
It's not a very large kit in 1/350 scale.
Image
Image
The finished kit.

Image
Two of the submarines in this 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.

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

Image
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)

Image
Here they are together. Gotland, Södermanland an Västergötland. They are named after provinces in Sweden.

Nice work! Haven't seen too many (any?) Swedish submarine models.

Nice models! Especially I like the conversion.

Do you know the museum of the Swedish navy in Karlskrona? There HMS Neptun (Näcken class) and models of all Swedish submarine classes are shown:
