The destruction of Allied shipping by German U-boats was a spectacular and tragic feature of both World Wars I and II. Luis Peña has recreated the much-dreaded underwater menace and scourge of Allied sailors at 1:50 scale with U-Boat VIIc, the most common class of German submarine.
The contouring of the ship is beautiful, she looks like a long slender species of whale without flippers. Featuring all things you’d expect on a submarine plus a few extras.
Small details like the life preserver and the fire extinguisher really help bring this silent predator to life. Most of all I love the humour and character Luis has put into the various scenes throughout the ship.
