German type 21 Uboat

Post by Jeffrey Goff » Tue Dec 10, 2019 11:48 am

during the summer while rummaging through antique shops in the Derby Dales I bought an intriguing brass plaque with details on U3008 a type 21 Uboat
so I modelled a boat to go with the plaque

What, couldn't pull it off in 1/6th??

On a serious note... amazing score on the plaque. Great that it got into the hands of someone who understood its history. And could build it a suitable companion piece to really explain the history.

Your scratch-built sub is remarkable!!!!

Would you please post some build pictures?

Cheers,

RPR

Nice Type 21 Jeffrey, is it the Robbe 1:40 scale. Dynamic or Static dive system?

I love sailing Subs, always get a twitch in a certain area when they disappear beneath the waves.

And often get asked "How deep will it go Mr".

The answer is, "all the way if I've not been careful" :lol:

very nicely finished U-boat.
The Plaque is not original probably who ever made it had exactly the intention you have of displaying it with a model.

Hi John, yes it is the Robbe with dynamic diving, all systems working, I added working torpedo tube doors and lighting, but like all of my models they have to be functional although I never use them, just for show
Regards Jeff
