Martin Noorloos (Martinnnn) built Revell 1:72 VIIC u-boat (no. 05015). A famous kit already, and probably one of the largest submarine models around for a decent price!

Martin,

Very well written. I do believe this will come in handy for future builders of this puppy.

In addition, I'm honored and humbled to be included in the article.

Thanks Lil' Bro

Yes I liked it, if I didn't it would never be online :-)
(jocking!!!!)

You wrote it in a simple and funny way - and remember to always wash your hands after eating pizza, before handling plastic models

Keep safe and keep'em comming!!

A very entertaining read, and a lovely build of the U-boat. The pre-shading came out very well I think. Thanks Martin!

I've got nothing more to add to the comments of the other guys. Very entertaining read, a lot of info, and very professional pics.

I hope you made a good deal with mr. REvell on this one, cause he'll sure be selling a lot more of these babies now your article is posted.

But, as a marketing graduate, just a small hint:
Everything sells better if you put a nice model holding or slightly touching the object you're trying to sell.
So, in this case, how about a nice model holding your model?
I know you've got both at your disposal....
:-)
just kidding...


great work!

Martin ...... Well done! An interesting read. You did a fine job with the VII C. I'm glad you wrote the article. I will try the pre shading when I build mine. I can't wait to see what you come up with for DDD2.
