1/200 U-2009-500 Nichimo U-Boat Type IXB Wolfpack U-107 Submarine Motorized - With Mabuchi Motor
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good++
Large scale kit that is well molded and detailed. Includes all motorizing hardware and even a vintage boxed Mabuchi FA-130 motor. Can be made R/C with today's micro components. Features complete deck fittings, removable torpedo magazine covers with torpedoes inside, rotating deck gun, hand rails and five crew members. Molded in two colors, red and gray. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The somber box art, recalling the gritty tone of the film Das Boot, shows one of U-107's victims sinking under a gloomy sky and columns of black smoke. After a remarkable 16 patrols, the boat was depth charged and sunk with all hands in the Bay of Biscay 16 August 1944, by Sunderland EJ150 of 201 Squadron.
