Comments
This is  a nice kit from ICM and completes a series of U-boots in 1/144 scale along with releases from other manufacturers. Revell has the Type VII and XXI, ICM the Type II and XXIII, and trumpeter has a greta kit of the XXIII too. Now, all we need is a scale down version of Revell´s type IX and we can get a fleet of U-boots in constant scale. ICM´s Type II is a nice kit, with reduced number of parts but nice detail. It should build into a good replica of this boat.
