S Class

About this model

In all 63 'S' class submarines were made and we decided some years ago after the introduction of our 1/32nd scale Type VII to build the contemporary 'S' class to complement our fleet of models.

Our model is 82 inches long with an 8.5inch beam so there is plenty of room, with easy access to all the equipment. Owners of the OTW type VII can use its dive propulsion system in this model. Or you can buy the type VII dive and propulsion system for use with this boat.
