The latest from OTW:
OTW is proud to announce our new kit, the Artful (our name for the Astute series British submarine) is available for order.
German Submarines - WWII
The Volkswagen of submarines. If anyone has ever seen a photograph or movie showing a World War 2 U-boat then the Type 7 is probably what they have seen. Over 650 of these boats were built, a truly staggering number.
The Molch (Salamander) was an electrically driven one man operated torpedo carrier. They were employed off Anzio and later off the coast of Holland. About 390 were built, but they were not very effective as they were too complicated to operate and their crews lacked proper training and support.
OTW’s representation of the HMS Astute class of submarines. Called the Artful, for reasons we will go into…
British Nuclear & Diesel Electric
The Valiant class was the first fully British Nuclcuar sumarine.
The Conqueror was part of the Vlaiant class that that sunk the Belgrano during the falklands war.
In the mid-late 1920s, the British built the “M” class range of Submarines with very large guns 12 inch plus and an on board aircraft.The Surcouf was the French equivalent submarine monitor and was commissioned in 1934.
This system is built into a plexiglass tube. It comes completely assembled. All you need to supply is an FM radio receiver and three servos.
Propellers and Propulsors
Hand built, one piece castings, supplied complete with prop shaft in stainless steel.
