As we did with the type VIIC kit, now we present this review on the "Atlantic version" VIIC/41. Like the other one this is a product of a very good quality. The model was released sometime after Type VIIC and VIID. Revell again presents us a superbly detailed model that make it almost unnecessary to use other products such as photo-etched or resin parts, except for those modelers who want to go a little further into the assembly. Like its predecessors, is a simple mounting kit, ideal for all types of modelers. The "Atlantic Version" was equipped with a modified version of the bridge, largest, called "Large Wintergarten", armed with two 20 mm anti-aircraft guns and a 37 mm M42U, a snorkel for fresh air and exhaust, four pressure compartments for five men rafts, and the wooden deck. All this precisely detailed in the kit, as well as the atlantic bow. The assembly instructions are well explained and painting guide offers the possibility to represent the units U-292, U-318, U-998 and U-1004, with their decals. Again, in contrast, we see some parts out of scale, as the rails of the tower and some minor erros, but still remains a highly recommended kit.
