I pre-ordered Das Werk’s 1/72

Daniel Lupton

I pre-ordered Das Werk’s 1/72 U-9 shortly before it’s release from Scale Model Shop. Order was filled as soon as stock was received. No delay. I have no reservations with these guys and would recommend them to anyone.
Das Werk are a relative new comer to the field of plastic modelling. U-9 is a real find and is their first venture into naval subjects. It is a simple kit, quick and easy to build and everything fits together well with no sink holes, flash or problem seam lines.
The only difficult area of construction are the turnbuckles for the cables protecting the hydroplanes which worked out well for me.
This model is really an exercise in painting, rather than construction, and represents a pleasant change to those of us usually dealing with 1000+ parts in a kit.
The 100 page bilingual U-9 book that comes with the initial run of the kit is a wonderful production full of photos I’ve never seen before and a fine testament to a well researched model in production.
I totally recommend this model, the team at Das Werk and the guys at Scale Model Shop.
