Revell 1/144 Type VII U-Boat

When Revell's 1/72 U Boat came out, there was much joy. However, have you seen how big it is?!
Daft, I calls it...so here's the 1/144 version.
Just assume a perfect fit throughout and, for me, detail is adequate sans photoetch.

I confess that I did (briefly...very, very briefly) contemplate drilling out all of the little holes. Then I went the route of the Jessy Pastry and painted 'em all a very dark grey. I then dry-brushed paler greys over the top.

Not being a huge maritime fan, I hadn't been to this part of the forum for a while. Geez, what have I been missing! Lovely collection of subs, Bruce. :D
