I was at a local yard sale and there was a box of old model kits for sale.So i looked in the box and found a 1/350th u-boat in resin with no PE set and no decals.
I did find out that this model was by Jaguar,so I called them and they told me that the kit was discontinued.
So I would like to know is there any company(s)that sell PE sets and decals for the German u-boat type IXc/40? any suggestions will be helpful.
Thank you.

Hobby Boss type lXC has some PE parts included. No guarantee they will fit the resin kit. PE railings, etc. Maybe also try Tom's Modelworks.

Hi Jody,

Try Eduard, I know they do etch for a type VII, (Looks quite good) may well have a set for a type IX as well.


Cheers
