Default Coming soon in 1/72nd scale.



Builds as U9-U12 (WWI).
At 1/72nd scale there are a lot of great possibilities, however this is pretty close to "Honey? We need to talk" scale. Expect something about a yard long next to the fish tank.
Kit is due to be released sometime after Christmas.

Very keenly priced when compared to the Revell Type VII

I think skilled model builder is needed here.

I have two model in my house. One is in making(F/A-18E Super Hornet 1:32) the other(HMS Hood 1:200) are on my to do list

This one have been added and will be ordered when I'm half finish with the Hood.

Well, we're talking about a scale where (if you REALLY wanted to "hyper-detail" your kit) you can argue that the hull above the waterline should be painted by hand with the smallest "000" brush you can find. Just enough where you can make out brush strokes in the paint. In port, sailors aren't issued a spray gun when its time to paint the boat. This is also the part where research becomes important- how long were these boats in service? Where were their homeports? How much weathering would be "too much"?




BTW, if you are interested in this build, just consider where its going to wind up. The actual length works out to 31 inches or 79 cm.
After the fitting, gluing, paintwork, and weathering- its going to need a place to sit.

A model like this should be placed in a Display Stand(I think it's called) where it's protected from "investigating" little fingers

The Revell type VII in USD is $33 on Amazon, I have bought it two times, the first I had a instruction booklet missing- so i couldn't build it. Then the second time, the damn dog chewed up the decals and I never got to painting it so I scrapped it. Plus it wasn't done too well, so I decided to throw it away and get a new one soon.

Mapuc, indeed a case would be needed. I have had to hide all my model boats from my younger brother because he likes to take them into the bathtub and play with them. I have lost a USS Arizona and a PT-109 because of him!!! I will not loose my USS Missouri too! I have so many models that they won't fit on my bookshelf and desk, and I would like a shelf that has maybe a lock where I can put my models in. Protected from investigating hands and it will look cool!

I also have an F-22 Raptor in my basement that I need to get the decals put on, then she will be complete.
