German Submarine Type VIIc/41

Eduard 1:350

The Revell 1:350 Type VIIc/41 kit, reviewed HERE, is very nice out of the box, but, as with all things model related it can still benefit from some finer details and who else but Eduard would come to the detail mad modeller?

 

(53228) The single sheet set combines a selection of new and replacement parts to give you U-Boat that extra zing, even in this scale. The sheet contains, new deck sections for the fore peak and right aft, new hatches for the rest of the deck, along with fittings for the foreplanes and propeller shaft A frames. There are new intakes for around the hull, plus propeller guards/aerial supports on the aft deck. The tower receives new decks for the 20mm cannons and winter garden deck for the 37mm cannon. The interior of the conning section receives new boarding on the sides as well as a new DF aerial and a complete replacement for the search radar array. The 20mm and 37 mm cannon also get extra details, some replacing kit details that are rather clunky and some new. The biggest improvement over the kit parts has to be the railings though, both for the tower structure and the hull.

Conclusion

Eduard just can’t help themselves with providing detail sets for almost every kit that has been released. This small, but perfectly formed set is just perfect though for bringing a finesse that the kit parts can’t hope to emulate. Don’t forget your magnifiers when you start to use the PE though as most are extremely small in this scale.
