Luftfahrtverlag-Start Decals for Revell 1/72 U-Boat Type IXC

This decal sheet from Luftfahrtverlag-Start is for the 1/72 Revell 05166 kit of a Type IXC U-boat. The kit gives you 2 decal schemes but this decal set gives you another 16 options!

The bag contains a decal sheet, 3 resin parts and a full colour, half A4 sized booklet of 8 pages. The resin parts are part of the options for U-153 and U-504. U-153 went to sea with a battle axe attached to the conning tower and U-503 had a large circular plaque attached to each side of the conning tower.

The 16 options are:

  • U-66 1941-42
  • U-66 1942-44
  • U-67 1941-43
  • U-68 1941-44
  • U-126 1943
  • U-128 1941-43
  • U-129 1942-44
  • U-130 1943
  • U-153 1941-42
  • U-155 1944-45
  • U-156 1941-43
  • U-502 1943-44
  • U-503 1941-42
  • U-504 1941-43
  • U-507 1941-43
  • U-509 1941-43

Luftfahrtverlag-Start occasionally does limited run decal sheets of aircraft, and submarines. Usually, the print run is 500 copies, and once they’re out of stock, that’s it. The decal sheet is printed by Cartograph.

The quality of the decals themselves is very good, as you would expect from Cartograph. The whites look good and the other colours are vibrant.

Conclusion
Impeccably researched, as you’d expect from the publishers of U-Boot im Focus. The decal sheet is highly recommended and will allow you to build a unique Type IX-C U-boat that you won’t see anywhere else.

The decals cost 19,50 Euro + shipping.
The decals are available on their website on this page.
