    Hi All
    This is my first post and a "newbie" also to submarines...hence the name...I am looking for a Revell 1:72 scale kit of the V11c U-Boot, and from what I can gather is no longer in production.
    If you have one you would like to part with you can contact me at mikestightlines@blueyonder.co.uk.

    I am currently making 1 and a half Robbe U-47's...why 1 and a half, well the first one was half built and i have finished off for a friend and has been sailed before being painted, the second one is a unstarted kit and being made for a friend of the first friend !!...this has got me wanting to have a go at making my own WTC with static dive set-up, hence the "Wanted" paragraph...I also have a Revell Gato kit arriving as a Father's Day present, again this will be built as a working model.

    Will post some thoughts on the Robbe U-47 kits over the coming weeks

    Hi Mike,

    Well, I've scoured the usual sources, Nigel has been on ebay, and neither of us can locate a kit anywhere. The only thing I can suggest is that you add the search to your ebay favourites list and wait until one turns up.

    Good luck with your quest...

    Fear not Mike, we'll find you one somewhere. There may be one at the Alfold Show this weekend, they have a 'bring and buy' sale there.
