Moving U 505
Revell has released another fine u boat model, the Type IX in 1:72 scale. Perhaps the most famous Type IX is U 505, captured in 1944 and now restored and housed in the
Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. (The exhibit, and the museum, are WELL worth the effort of visiting!)
WATERLINE - Our AMP decals are direct replacements for the inaccurate Type IX waterline decals on Revell kit RV050114.
Each waterline number on the AMP design has one numeral, as per the real Type IXs, whereas the Revell kit decals have two-digit numerals.

SHELL - The decal sheet for Revell kit RV050114 contains a U 505 shell emblem with a red shield. The red shield is entirely unsuitable for U 505.
The AMP decal set (T9-SHELL-72) is a direct replacement, allowing modellers to accurately depict U 505 during her final patrol when she was captured by US forces.
