Under the sea
Comparatively small and ungainly when set against earlier submarine types, the XXIII submarines were nevertheless revolutionary. They were some of the first submarines ever designed to operate primarily underwater, a capability they achieved with a massive 67-cell battery and a snorkel for the diesel engines. Sixty one were completed shortly before the end of the war and U-2336 sank the last Allied ships in the European theater of operations. Kit features conning tower, display stand, and three sets of decals.
