1:72 New deck gun and wintergarden machine gun

Postby Casey Thrower » Sun Apr 25, 2004 12:09 pm

The deck gun and machine gun on the Revell 1:72 U-boat leave a lot to be desired. My machine gun barrel was broken and so was the arm braces. Anyone on the list to come up with better versions? I'll buy. Any aftermarket already out for other boats of that size. This IS a big boat but some pieces are very very small and don't glue well. I want to use a substitute for the wire antenna as well. Any suggestions?

hi Casey,

...can't help with the gun parts, but you could replace the sewing thread that is intended to be used for the antenna with a black monofilament fishing line. I find this to be easier to work with and it glues quite nicely with CA.
