Description

 

In March 2008 I started my modelling project U-564, a Type VIIc  U-boat under the command of Kapitaenleutnant Reinhard “Teddy” Suhren. The model is based on Revell's 1/72 scale kit.

After one year (with summer break) I have now finished the construction of all interior parts so now you can see Part Two of my project.

I completed the last two sections of interior: command section, bow torpedo room and used CMK’s correspondent kits ,CMK Command Section  and  CMK Torpedo Section, plus some parts from CMK’s Provision Set.

For the crew, I  took some figures from the sets CMK Crew at Rest II, CMK Crew with Binoculars and CMK Armament Crew in Port.

 

 

Both sections were supplemented by some scratch built parts again. In this case:

  • additional valves,

  • hand wheels and tubes,

  • handholds,

  • compass,

  • engine telegraphs,

  • rudder indicator,

  • speaking tubes,

  • helm stand and nautical charts,

  • open torpedo tube,

  • air and waterpipes,

  • firing lever and torpedo loading device.

Of course the crew is working as well!

For the interior paint I used following colors:

  • Inside above floor:   RAL 9003 =  Revell 5 matt white mit 2% Humbrol 41 Ivory

  • Inside below floor:   RAL 9002 =  Revell 5 matt white / Revell 69 granite grey  (98% / 2%)

  • Inside misc: RAL 7000 =  Revell 57 matt grey

I also used various ModelMaster Metalizer, washing and weathering with artist oils in brown and black.
