This is a 1:40 scale model of a WWII era German G7e/T3 torpedo. It is designed to be fitted with a micro motor and electronic timer. It's intended for use with the Robbe U47 or similar model submarines. A launch mechanism is also available in my shop. The buoyancy is excellent, even when completely filled with water it still hangs just below the surface of the water. To completely waterprooof this model you should paint it and add a O-ring and roll some tape around the connecting bus. Note that this is the body only, there's no propellor included in this version yet.


IN: 7.473 w x 0.569 d x 0.563 h
CM: 18.982 w x 1.444 d x 1.43 h

@DannyMNL Hello again Yes I want to make them into working torpedos. If you can make the props as near to real looking, that`s good enough for me. NOT too many around me who are experts on the real thing. Also for me they would have to be in 1/35 scale for my plans. I need enough for 14 torpedos, so if my math is right; 28 pieces lets say 30++ for breakage sake. What do you think? Thanks Again for your reply. George Tonkovic A picture of the Final before production run would be nice to see so I can make sure they are what I am after.

@GeorgeJure Hi George, I'm fine, thanks! Just to be sure, are you intending to make these torpedo's into working torpedo's or are you going to use them as static props on your model? I ask this because the original torpedo's had counter rotating propellors that are almost impossible to accurately reproduce as a working model. If you want to use these as static items on your schnellboot I 'd recommend looking at the torpedo models made by a company called Mikro-Mir. They'd be a lot cheaper than custom printing your torpedo's in 1/35 scale. I believe Italeri also has torpedo's in stock in this scale, and apparently they might even be able to be made into running models. To be honest I only made this particular set of torpedo's because I needed them to be precisely in 1/40th scale. The surface finishing is not that great due to the printing technique and I would not have used them if there were more accurate models out there in this scale...

@DannyMNL Just checking in to see how you are after your eye surgery? Also any chance you have had a look at the props we spoke about before? Please let me know. Thanks George

@DannyMNL Yes I understand and with the Christmas Season, you have other things on your mind as well. If you can later, please let me know about both questions. George

@GeorgeJure I'll see what I can do ;) I can't give an estimate but I'll try to make it as soon as possible. About the propellors, I'll try to make a model of that if I have the time but in a week I'll undergo laser eye surgery which means no computer time for a while. I hope you'll understand.
