REVELL TYPE IIB UBOAT 1:144 – PART 3

This time a short update…

The basic painting was completed last night and she is ready for a coat of future to facilitate decalling and weathering afterwards.

Like i said on my facebook page i am going for U-23, commanded by the top ace Kretschmer. This involved a three tone paintjob (conning tower is slightly darker than the upper hull). I started out with a flat black preshading, then sprayed the base color and post shaded by adding a few drops of tan or white to the mixes and finished up with a misting of the base color again to blend it all in.

As this kit doesn’t provide the modeller with nice rivet and panel details like the revell’s own produced type VII’s have i tried to add a bit of a panel impression by streaking a slightly darker grey into the upper hull.

So on with the decalling and adding some wear and tear to this canoe!
