Type 212 question

Postby secrtwpn » Fri Apr 20, 2012 8:09 pm

Question about the German Type 212. I just picked up the 1/350 HobbyBoss Type 212. Looks like a great kit. Anyway, anyone know of the reasoning for the brace on the X-tail? I've seen it on the Aussie Collins and the Israeli Dolphins. I would think this have a lot of flow noise.........

I read somewhere else the brace is called a torpedo guidance-wire guard. Not a popular device and rumored many seem to disappear from the tail. That is hearsay, but maybe someone else has more information.

If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
