The stern is pretty bare right now at this early stage of construction. There are many more parts waiting on the sprue, I mean dock, to be added to this vessel.
The bridge is highly detailed, the model sort of works from front to rear in construction.
The big hole in the front is for the gunner of a light AA gun. The armored bridge is a big improvement over the older SBoats with simple wooden bridges. This Revell 1/72nd scale kit fits together well, too bad they don't give you any crew figures. I will use the Revell WWII German Navy soft plastic figures in 1/72nd scale, but it would have been nice to have more choices by having a few guys in the model.
