  • German Seehund Submarine Kit in 1:12 Scale

    Background:

    The Seehund (German: "seal"), also known as Type XXVII, was a midget submarine manufactured by Nazi Germany during World War II. Designed in 1944 and operated by two-man crews, it was used by the Kriegsmarine (German Navy) during the closing months of the war, sinking nine merchant vessels and damaging an additional three.

    The main hull is 2mm thick vacuum-formed plastic, while the control surfaces, bow, stern and sail are 3D printed in plastic. Th 3D printed parts may exhibit the striations typical of this manner of manufacturing.
