as with all my revell builds, i found this kit a blast to work through. although a basic, simple construction, care should be exercized throughout the steps to keep all completed sections aligned properly. using the complete hull half (not the windowed one) as a jig to hold each newly built section to the last while the cement sets assures the completed interior fits well inside the joined hull halves. i found joining the halves together to be the most challenging part of the build., so be aware of that. all in all, the kit was fun and informative as to what your basic submarine looks like inside. how authentic it actually is isn't really important to me, just that the model works for me visually, and this one definitely does. i thought weathering was necessary to jazz up the outside, but left the interior pristene, as a contrast to make it pop. i love this kit and look forward to building revell's other u-boat with interior model, which is already in my stash. i highly recomend it to modelers with some experience. building this one, i felt like i grew as a modeller, and that's as good as it gets! p.s.: be ready for some serious decal time, because this interior has hours of tiny decals to apply in challenging places. very rewarding,though.
