1/48 scale Type XXI U-boat

Germany's Type XXI U-boat, introduced at the end of WWII, was the first "true submarine." Equipped with a snorkel for its diesel engines, air conditioning, and advanced hydrophones, it could operate continuously submerged and set the standard for postwar submarine design.

This recently updated kit accurately duplicates the sleek lines of the original with detailed deck and conning tower with gun turrets, scribed torpedo shutters and flood openings, and twin, triple bladed propellers.
