Overview
-

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.

REVIEWS
-

“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.”

- Army Rumour Service
