Extremely detailed 1/144 scale assembly model kit of the German U-Boat ("Unterseeboot" or "Undersea Boat"), a military submarine operated by the German Navy in World War I and The Second World War. U-boats were highly effective in damaging Allied supply and merchant shipping in both world wars, and it wasn't up until the Allies adopted the convoy system in The second world war, where merchant ships were grouped together and protected by a screen of escort vessels, that U-Boat threat was lastly tamed. The German Kriegsmarine ("War Navy") even more established U-Boats in the 2nd World War, leading to a new generation of more technically sophisticated U-Boats such as the Type VII, which was without a doubt the most produced type. This Revell Germany 1/144 scale assembly kit portrays the Type VIIC41 U-Boat, the slightly customized Type VIIC with a stronger pressure hull enabling it to attain a deeper test depth and lighter equipment to compensate for the included steel in the hull.
