Fllod and drain holes for German U-boats

Postby modelnut » Tue Nov 19, 2013 9:51 pm

I have seen patterns of flood and drain holes online for the Revell 72nd scale Gato model. But I haven't found much on the 72 scale u-boats, the VIIc and Atlantic version. With the IX coming out soon I know many people will either build it straight, super-detailed or RC. Either way to build the boat accurate we need flood and drain hole patterns.

Are they out there? Have I been looking in the wrong places?

I've circled what I think are the flood vents. They are molded onto the Revell kit. Do you RC guys open those up?

Ignore this thread as you have already. It was a dumb question. Everything is on the Revell VIIc model. It was the Gato that had nothing.

I plead lack of sleep as my excuse for asking such a dumb question.

Leelan,

To answer your question about opening them up....

Depending on the size (scale) of the model, yes, we open them up. The smaller ones under the bow and near the prop shafts are a bit of a challenge on the smaller boats.
