Revell 1/72 Type VIIC/41 U-boat `U995`

Recommended Posts

Hi,

this is my last project, it took me about a year to complete this model.

Almost every aftermarket upgrade kits which are available for this kit were used:

-Nautilus wooden deck

-Eduard VII/C PE kit

-White Ensign models type VII flood, drain and vent holes PE kit

-Griffon FLAK-guns high detail kit

-Modelbrass type VII PE kit

-Archer transfers type VII rivet decal set

I opened al the floodholes, added ribs inside the hull above the saddletanks, remade the railings from 0.5mm brass wire, scratchbuild the whole exhaust system wich lies beneath the deck, `oil canned` the hull, replaced about 800 rivets wich were sanded away, corrected the `bull nose` and corrected all the faults in this kit (wich are many....)

Very nice indeed, looks pretty realistic to an ex sub builder.

One tiny thing those would be high pressure air tanks not oxygen.

It looks so real!

The wear and tear on the model is some of the most realistic I have ever seen!

Awesome work!

You should give a tutorial on how you achieved the worn effect, it's very convincing
