FirstLook


Revell's 1/72 scale TypeVIIC U-Boat is one of the most spectacular kit releases in recent years.

New decal company ULAD has followed up its initial decal release with two more sheets of decals for this amazing model.

Part II includes individual markings for the following 20 boats in a total of 21 versions wearing a range of different camouflage schemes comprising different shades of grey with a variety of demarcation lines and patterns. The specific boats covered are:

U-71, U-72 (two styles), U-81, U-92, U-97, U-134, U-205, U-209, U-221, U-223, U-225, U-228, U-231, U-238, U-338, U-404, U-458, U-564, U-593 and U-601.

 

 

Part III features a greater variety of camouflage patterns, and covers the following 16 boats:

U-94, U-332, U-333, U-334, U-407, U-571, U-751, U-757, U-453, U-556, U-453, U-565, U-592, U-596, U-617, U-755.

 



There are some great, colourful emblems on both decal sheets including Sea Serpents, cats, cartoon characters, swordfish, bears, lions, eagles, sea horses, heraldic emblems and much more.

The decals are perfectly printed, thin and in register. The small instruction sheets include diagrams and a brief summary of the record of each boat.

 

 

Colour callouts are made via a reference list which quotes RAL numbers plus paint matches for Humbrol and Revell. This list also allocates a greyscale colour key. Both these sheets now have a letter-code to match the correct camouflage colour to the model paint. This is much clearer than the colour callouts on the first decal release.

 

 

Conclusion

 

These decal sheets from ULAD will add even more appeal to Revell's fabulous new 1/72 scale Type VIIC U-Boat.

The colourful emblems and alternate camouflage patterns will add an individual touch to your big submarine.

Recommended.
