*History : U-260 was a Type VIIC U-Boat commissioned in March 1942. She took part in 9 Patrols, sinking one ship, and was scuttled by the crew in March 1945 after being damaged ( originally it was thought by a mine, but it's now thought she hit a rock pinnacle ) off the south coast of Ireland. All the crew survived and were interned in Ireland until the end of the war. Her wreck is now a popular spot for Scuba Divers, and her Sky Periscope Lens is still in place! As she survived through most of the war, she got numerous upgrades, hence me using the Type VIIC/41 Kit with a few minor changes.
Edited to update with pictures taken in better light...
