Engel Submarine Type 212A

The high-quality Engel Type 212 submarine kit is perfect if you’re into scale models, history, and realism. Modeled after the German Navy’s advanced Type 212 sub, this functional 1/70 scale model goes together smoothly using cast-resin, CNC’ed ABS plastic, brass, and stainless steel components. Engel’s innovative Tech Rack mounting ensures that your electronics stay dry, and multiple electronic safeties make sure you don’t lose your boat in the event of a mishap.

In the water, the sub looks incredible and dives, surfaces, and turns just like the real thing! Great for beginners and advanced hobbyists alike. Expect to finish it in a week or so (although the manual says it can be done in a weekend, which isn’t likely).
