The model a U-Boat Type VIIC, in 1/32 scale, depicts a U-boat from the 9th U-flotilla Brest in the year of 1942. The model is modeled by Marcello d'Andrea. The site features a small gallery of images of this highly detailed submarine and some of its crew.
The model and diorama depicts only part of the submarine. The real submarine would have been somewhere around two hundred feet long. The Type VII was not the best in its class, but did form the backbone of Germany’s WWII, U-boat force.
