ULAD's 1/72 scale
Type VIIC U-Boat Decals are available online from Squadron
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
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
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
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.
