Norbert bruggen 1/72 revell type 7 kit conversion
« on: September 20, 2016, 07:20:44 pm »

I am contemplating purchasing the static diving conversion for the 1/72 revell type 7c.  It looks to be very reasonably priced and nicely designed.  Has anybody got experience of putting one together or seeing one run?  I am fairly confident I could put it together but would be interested to hear how it performs.

Thanks

I've only seen pictures of the kit, but I have seen other kits by Norbert, and they're very well thought out. If I was going to do a Revell VII, this would be my choice of conversion kit.

Having said that, I think i would go for the basic kit and do my own ballast system, or just trim it to decks awash and run it dynamic.
