U1407 – Uboottyp XVIIB – 1/350 MikroMir
Today I would like to present my newest model – U1407 in its mid-1945 guise. It was commissioned into Kriegsmarine in April 1945 and used for the training, hence the yellow band on the kiosque.
The kit parts are quite accurate in terms of shape and dimensions but in some places the detail is missing. To update it a little I created the set of the photoetch plus decals which were used in this build. The model was painted with Lifecolor acrylic paints and Tensocromes. Some smaller details were painted with MrColor C-series paints. The overall varnish comes also from MrColor range.
