S38b and S100 E-boats class were German fast attack craft (Schnellboot in German) built for the Kriegsmarine during World War Two.

The E-boats (a British designation using the letter  E  for  Enemy) were defined by many naval experts as the best carrying out of their category. Initially these units were called Unterseebot Zerstörer (Hunting Submarine) and Anti-Submmarine Motorboats or Armored Motorboats, as they had an important anti-submarine mission. Later the Kaiserliche Marine (imperial german navy) adopted the designation of Luftschiffmotorenboot (boat with an airship engine) or L-Boote and, therefore, from November 1917, the units became LM-Boote, with the same meaning, but their use, especially in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, was not particularly successful.


“Whichever model you select to build you will benefit from having this book to hand. Recommended.”

- Scale Military Modeller International

“This reference with colours and fittings such as aerial wires will be a very useful reference for modellers.  Even the sea mines pictured on the back of the S-100 are available in kit form from AFV Club.”

- Military Model Scene

“Anything in this series would be a perfect gift for a model maker, so completely is the subject visually covered.”
