German Submarine Type XXI with Interior

At the beginning of 1945 with the type XXI Germany had the most advanced submarine in the world at that time. Due to numerous technical innovations it was capable of unlimited underwater travel as the diesel engines drew in the necessary fresh air through a special snort. It had a linear shape designed for submarine travel and its battery capacity was three times greater, giving it a sensational speed of 17 knots dived. Other innovations were noiseless electric motors for stealth, highly sensitive navigation instruments and 2 cm anti-aircraft gun turrets. The model has a separate left outer wall to the hull giving an authentic insight into this trail-blazing submarine. Many compartments are represented in accurate detail and also the diesel engines and electric motors. Views of the control room and living quarters of the crew give an impression of life under water. The decals include details of the interior and markings for the U2540 that went into service on 24.02.1945.
