U60 – Uboottyp IIC – 1/400 Mirage Hobby
This is a Uboat type IIc – U60 – in its late 1940 guise. I have extensively reshaped and modified kiosque and the bow shape of the hull supplied in Mirage’s kit. PE deck and limber holes came from Mirage’s dedicated set no.00540025. All other fittings and details are scratchbuilt. The Medium Gray paint comes from WEM Colorcoats range, the Dark Gray comes from Lifecolor acrylics. The main issue – I have noticed it after the model was finished – the 2 cm AA gun position on deck reflects the Typ IIB boat and not IIC (it is about 5-6 mm too far aft).
