U 214 Type VIID Minelayer, Revell 1/144
December 28, 2014 in Ships
Hi, something more simple modelling after Robs stellar diorama ( oh well )
Sometimes i finish something, this time a Type VIID mine layer submarine, started long time ago and recovered from the “project box” some weeks ago, why it went there, i don t know.
Its build right out of the box, i only added some wire and stretched sprue details to the 8,8 cm gun, there is a compare pic with a gun right out of the box from a second submarine project.(U-201, type VIIC )
The gun barrel from the 2 cm was replaced by a steel needle.
For the antennas i used the first time Ez line in company with brass wire and stretched sprues.
The isolators on the antennas were done with drops from wood glue.
One antenna /Flagpole was damaged/bent in the photo session 🙁
Weathering with acrylics and a lot of drybrushing, not too overdone because its 1/144
Not every sub went home as a weather beaten wreck.
Hope you like it
