The Atom Brick
On May 24, 1941 the German Kriegsmarine launched U-505, a type IXC submarine, also known as a U-boat. During her three years of operation, U-505 was responsible for the sinking of seven vessels with a total of 44,962 gross register tonnage lost over the course of twelve patrols. U-505 was captured on June 4, 1944 by Allied Task Group 22.3 commanded by Captain Daniel V. Gallery, making U-505 one of only 6 U-boats to be captured during World War II. After the war, U-505 would go on to become a museum ship at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Illinois where she remains today.
These sets from The Atom Brick recreate his iconic designs with parts that are 3/4 the size of standard building bricks, allowing for greater detail with a smaller footprint. This is great for both displaying and collecting.
