Italeri 1/35 scale U-boot Biber

An average builder who has some experience working with photoetched metal will enjoy this different and interesting 1/35 scale model kit.

Italeri continues its line of unique 1/35 scale naval subjects with this new German World War II midget sub, the Biber (Beaver). The one-man craft went into action in 1944. Though more than 300 were produced, technical flaws and the progress of the war prevented them from being much of a threat to the Allied navies; losses far outnumbered successes.
