German U-Boat TYPE VII C/41 "Biber"
Photo-Etched parts included
AFV Club is continuing their excellent run at Axis submarines with another variant of the Typ VII C U-boot which they designated as the Typ VII C/41. This is an improved standard production Typ VII C with a modified conning tower and “Wintergarten” and other detail changes.
This kit provides the 1943 and later production “Wintergarten” (twin 2 cm and a single 3.7 cm mounts but no deck gun) fit but no optional choices for the antiaircraft suite.
Of interest is the fact the kit comes with a pair of “Biber” midget submarines, each with a pair of torpedoes, which mount on the deck. It also comes with an optional sonar bulge which fits under the bow of the “full hull” variant. Alas, while the directions cover three different boats (U-995, U-1023, and U-1105) they do not say which ones had the later sonar nor which ones were rigged to carry “Biber” subs. Sinking pennants are included as well on the etched brass fret.
