Nice review - thanks.

personally I find the inner hull a vierd gimmic considering that its not visible trough the deck or floodholes ?

Cheers/Jan

Gimmicky or not, I'm loving these little sub kits more and more -especially the movable schnorkel (is that how it's spelled in German?)!

Nice kit. Although I build mostly armour, I've been intrigued by these new 1/350 releases from AFV.

The inner hull is a bit gimmick-y. I think the kit can be finished without it, unless someone wants to open all the vents on the hull's side!
