WW II GERMAN "S-SCHNELLBOOT" SPEEDBOAT DIORAMA
Type 1933-1935

The S-Boat is an example of how Germany was able to skirt the restrictions of the Versailles Treaty of 1919 through careful weapons engineering. In this case, they developed a boat that was small enough to be considered insignificant by the Allies and not regulated by the treaty. In effect, the Germans created a scaled down warship well-suited for naval Blitzkrieg. It was heavily armed and very fast, and could inflict great damage on a larger enemy and escape unharmed. Its sturdy design showed great foresight into its future operational role and emphasized quality over mass production.

In late July and early August 1945, future president and senator to be, John F. Kennedy visited defeated Germany with US Navy Secretary James Forestall. As a former PT boat captain, he was naturally interested in the German counterpart so he made a point of carefully inspecting an intact "E-Boat" at Bremen. Kennedy's diary records his conclusion: the Schnellboot was "far superior to our PT boat."

SPECIAL NOTE: We have priced this model to include the custom glazed wood case. In the event the buyer does not want the case, the price of the combination will be reduced by $300.00.

    • 1 x 20 mm gun, (20 mm single on early boats, Zwilling and special bow version on later classes)
    • 1 x 40 mm gun (40 mm Bofors) on some S38 class boats
