Great kit from Revell with absolute perfect fit and excellent detail in 1/72 scale.
Ive the model more or less complete which was an absolute dream to construct and i would highly recommend Revell ship kits
Some of the fine detailed parts such as flak guns, torpedo , liferaft etc
The kit comes with a nice stand as seen in the pics and the finished model will just be mounted on that, nameplate decals also come with the kit which look excellent
keep us updated on this one .

Great link there Leo, great respect to Kevin Wheatcroft and his crew for the restoration of the Schnellboot, some amount of time and money gone into that project
Will get back to work on this one after my hols
The detail on the deck is excellent, real sharp detail,which will take a pin wash perfectely, there is ones out there done by modelers together with 1/72 U Boats, deck scenes for example with crews loading on supplys etc, which is a project i would love to try ....i can dream anyhow of someday doing something like that, esp in 1/72 as are so many accessories available, even tho 1/35 is my most desired scale, im geting more and more into models in 1/72 which are excellent for dio possibity projects....plus of course when it comes to SHELVE SPACE my 1/72s aint taking up as much room as my 1/35 armor display.....
Revell also do crew figs in 1/72 as i am sure you are aware for this kit, but as a stand alone model its perfect looking on the stand .....The decal options are also excellent,,,,,i would highy recomend it esp with your interest in U Boats and the Kriegsmarine and all things German , id say for twenty euro man get upstairs in marks and grab one, you wont regret buying and building this kit
I hope to return to work on her soon, but for now its concentrating on my 1/35s for the MET
