1/72 German Submarine Type XXVII B "Seehund" Plastic Model Kit
Product ID: 80-5125
Skill level: 4
Length: 165 mm
Tiny terrors of the Third Reich
At just 41ft in length, Seehund submarines were only slightly longer than the payload they carried. Nevertheless, these tiny, two-man terrors were much more effective against Allied shipping than their diminutive size might suggest. Their success was predicated on the fact that they were virtually impossible to detect when submerged. The type's only failing was that it was unseaworthy; storms caused most of the 35 Seehund losses during the war. Kit features detailed parts, two torpedoes, display stand and decals for two submarines, U-5022 and U-5316.
