1/350 U Boat Type VIIC---Revell

Recommended Posts

This is on the way. I have a Trumpeter 1/350 USS Buckey destroyer escort in

an acrylic case and there's room for another ship, so I figured why not the Buckey's

adversary a German WWII Uboot. The Buckley rammed and then sank U-66 in

May 6, 1944, the plot was used for the movie "The Enemy Below", one of my all

time favorite war movies. The kit should be here by early next week.---John

Gidday John, I like the model, and your plans for a playmate for it. Good movie also, I saw it first in 1966. Robert Mitchum vs Kurt Jurgens if I recall. Regards, Jeff.

Step 1 : With a new X Acto blade installed cut the foolish gawdawfull box on top

on 3 sides to form a proper top opening box. This is a MUST! At least for me it is.---John

The hull and deck are all assembled. A little sanding and I'll mask and paint

the hull and deck. I am going to do U-96.---John

I have the upper hull painted a medium gray. Now I can add the dive planes, rudder and prop shafts

then mask the medium gray and paint the lower hull and deck a dark gray.---John
