nope.
sky scope is the forward scope, by the bridge/shelf area. the attack scope is in the standalone periscope housing.

Heya, Guys,

I have a question about the Revell VIIC, which just showed up in the mail yesterday (wahoo!)...

Forgive me if I don't articulate this very well... On my kit, the two hull halves are slightly tapered/flared OUTWARD at the top front portion of the bow (for want of a better description, if the ship were a shark, this would be the apex of it's snout)... Normally one would expect both hull halves to be PERFECTLY FLATwhere the two pieces mated, but not in this case --- did my plastic hull get beat up in transport, or is this the way the kit (and the real thing) is...? :(

Thanks a bunch for indulging me, guys!

Aloha,

Johnny B

It got beat up in shipping. one half of one of mine was the same way. the other kit I got had one broken off. Revell needs to work on their packaging.

Thanks, Sam! That's a real bummer for all of us!!! Have you bothered to ask RG for any replacement parts for those damaged in shipping...?

Aloha,

nope. mine was small enough that when I glue the two hull halves together, I'm sure it will be straightened. If yours looks beyond repair, I'd start with the retailer you purchased it from first.
