Kriegsmarine S-Boats

E-boat was the Western Allies’ designation for the fast attack craft (German: Schnellboot, or S-Boot, meaning “fast boat”) of the Kriegsmarine during World War II. The most popular, the S-100 class, were very seaworthy, heavily armed and capable of sustaining 43.5 knots.

The plastic sprue that came with Wargames Illustrated has two S-Boats, an S-100 and an S-38.

I found this graphic useful in putting these models together.

As with any small plastic model kit, I found these quite fiddly to put together.

I gave both models a white undercoat.

I then sprayed the models with Humbrol Grey.

It didn’t cover too well.
