Very nice Timo. How long did it take you to build?

I see it also does have the flag with the Hackenkreuz, therefore they gave up Political Correctness for Historical Correctness... :D :D :D

There is also an excellent model built by FineArtModels on the market, accurate in all details, but it's even more expensive, being built for museum usage :cry:

Hallo Ovidius,

As its a kit, the Hackenkreuz flag is "optional".

Andrea sells a build, painted and weathered version of their kit for 7800 Euros.

Regards,
Timo

The Andrea model is wonderful, but if you want some other nearly as good but much cheaper, there is a slightly smaller 1/35 Type VIIc by Accurate Armour. This is "only" 188cm long, and is waterline.
You can see it on their website. Have a look. It is around €540.

They also do a real nice Type XXIII just €260.
