This is a very old kit from Revell. It represent a U-Boot type VII B, exactly the U47 commanded by Günther Prien.

I bought this kit a while back and it's been my stash for some time. Though I mainly build WW2 aircrafts, a little change is sometimes nice.

Built out of box. First time using salt treatment. The conning tower is insignia blue, ya, I couldn't belive it too but according to a couple of sites this was the color. Figures are from Czech Masters with some modification.
