German U-99 U-Boat Model

The U-99 was without doubt one of the German naval crafts that the Allies feared the most throughout most of the duration of World War II. It was commanded by Lieutenant Otto Kretschmer, who guided it whilst it sank 43 Allied vessels up to 1941. The U-99 was a type VIIB submarine and was equipped with multiple torpedoes. In total she saw eight different deployments all over the North Atlantic, until finally being destroyed by the British destroyer HMS Walker, near to Iceland. She was one of the most successful vessels of the war and a prized catch for the British Navy.

Now fans of World War II naval history can have their very own miniature replica of the U-99, with the release of the Revell U-99 U-Boat model kit. The fact that this is made by Revell, who are one of the giants of the model business, ensures that the quality is as high as possible and fans of their other models won’t be disappointed here.
