This is the 1/72nd scale Revell Type VIIC U Boat. Added all of the CMK interior sets (not sure why they never did the Radio Room for this particular boat), the wooden deck, several photo etch and aluminium sets and a resin conning tower. I super detailed the interior pieces with model railroad detail parts and scratchbuilt items with Evergreen strip. Gizmology as Shep Paine called it :-) The bust is a 1/9th scale piece from Beneito, painted with Vallejos.

I dream of a world where a chicken can cross the road without having its motives questioned.

What we do in life will echo in eternity.

Superb.

After spending two days opening up the limbers and vents, I can't imagine the time you put into that.

Wonderful work.

I forgot to mention: Since I've been working on one myself and all the research, etc. I came across some of the Trumpeter 1/48s with full interior that have been built. Your 1/72 is a better presentation than any of them.

Thanks ausf. I appreciate that. It was a fun build. Can't remember how many times I watched "Das Boot" during the build!
