U-boat Decals

 

 


U-boat Waterline Markings

White Draft Numbers

U-boat Waterline Markings recreate the three sets (bow, midships, stern, on port & starboard) of white draft numbers on the hull that all type VIIB, VIIC and VIIC/41 U-boats had. No accurate U-boat model is complete without these numbers.

Customer feedback:

“These waterline decals are needed to complete an accurate model of any WWII German U-Boat. I have found them to be of superior quality and easy to apply on the hull of my models. They are a needed touch on the hull of a U-Boat.” | Dan Bauer, modeler

The 7th U-Flottille Snorting Bull

The size and placement of the bull did vary on a number of boats. Details of size and placement upon individual boats are covered in page 14 of the 17 page article. There were generally two sizes of bull, one a regular size and another noticeably larger. Accordingly, we have designed the bulls in two sizes (normal and large) per scale. Two bulls are provided per order, one facing left and one right.

Type IX Insignia

 

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.
