OKB Grigorov has provided very nice and unusual submarine in this German Type 201. This was the first post war German submarine. They only built three type 201's U-1, U-2 and U-3 and they first entered service in 1961. The had issues with the Amagnitic steel material which lead to cracks in the structure, so all were scrapped.

Included is:

  • Two Photo Etch Sheets
  • One resin submarine
  • Two small resin parts

The detail quality is great; The parts are very delicate parts that need careful removal from the resin bases.

There was no instruction sheet in the box I received to review, this was not a problem as it was a simple build although there was not much reference materials online due to this being a very short lived program.

The ssembly is quick and easy.

I would like to have seen some small decals.

The final part is painting.

I really enjoy building these small submarine kits and will look for more! They are a very simple and quick build that is fun and leads to a great display once complete.

Thanks go to OKB for providing this kit to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them
