Hi all, I am currently building a Revell 1:144 Type VII/c U-boat (U 252). I've reached the weathering stage and there's something that bothers me a little: I've noticed that the anchor is stowed almost directly above the fixed fin for the starboard bow plane. It seems impossible to me for this fin not to have sustained some damage during the lowering and raising of the anchor but in my research I can find no evidence of this. Could someone more knowledgeable clarify this for me please? Thanks, Tony
Love the detail on these revell kits so much fun to build and paint. This was an experiment with new weathering techniques. Very happy with the results, much better than my previous drybrushing techniques. Lots of diluted washes to build up the shading this time, and rust lots of rust.
