1/72 U-Boat Atlantic Version

by Peter Kouklos & Alex Kontiveis



What can we say about a giant (1 meter length) submarine model?

Just nothing, except admiring it!


That was Revell’s U-Boat (Atlantic version in 1/72 scale)


The kit was quite good, much better than the older classic one U-boat!


Although the absence of any figures, the model by itself is very impressive.

The model is built “straight from the box” and no extra detail was added!!!  Not even a little part!

We paid attention and extra care on painting and weathering.  We used Humbrol enamel colours (Matt Black 32, Lightened Azure blue, light grey, Silver, Rust and Gun metal)

The final result is a fantastic sub for “your eyes only”  


Our next project: A Mil Mi 24 Hind in 1/35 shot down in Afghanistan !!!
