This is the Revell 1:125 scale U-boat sold as U-99. I chose to model U-96 as seen mid war. The net cutter was deleted for this purpose. The conning tower has been extensively reworked and detailed, with the 8.8cm detailed and a scratch-built 2cm. Flooding slots were drilled out and I added a complete inner pressure hull, much of it no longer visible but hey I'm crazy. The hull was also detailed and some major panels were scribed to represent weld seams. The model was painted with Tamiya acrylics, washed with oils and weathered with pastels.
