Revell Deutsches U-BootTYPE VII C-41 “Atlantic Version” 05100 1:144

From summer 1943 a total of 91 U-boats of the VII C/41 type were commissioned. By this time, the operating conditions had changed completely. The pack tactics rarely led to the successful detection of ship convoys and special anti-submarine aircraft now patrolled over a wide area. In order to be able to defend themselves better against air attacks when surfaced, the Type VII C/41 U-boats were given a tower superstructure extended to a large conservatory. This is faithfully depicted in the model with two 20 mm anti-aircraft twins and a 37mm M42U anti-aircraft cannon. An erectable snorkel mast for fresh and exhaust air ducting, which was movable in the model, and four watertight pressure vessels with 5-man life rafts were further features of these submarines. Thanks to the better structural steel, the boats could now dive up to 250 m. New components are included to depict the wooden deck with engraved pressure vessels and the Atlantic stem. The highly detailed fuselage representation with rivets and weld seams is also worth mentioning. The following U-boats can be depicted with the decals: U 292, U 318, U 998, U 1004.
