If you are looking for a challenge, combatmodels.us has 1/72 vacuform u-boats, 2 from WW1.
There are large plans with the kits.
A challenge? You have a gift for understatement.
COMBAT MODELS produces two WWI era German U-boats (U-9 and U-35), and a USN "S-Calss" Sub designed at the end of WWI.As well as an old "flush deck" USN Destroyer (U.S.S. Ward).
Be prepared to invest a lot of time,effort and resources.Scratch-building skills are a must,as well as raiding after-market detail sets.A good looking finished product can be accomplished,but it will take a lot of patience.
I'm currently working on the 1/72 "S-Class" (WWII version).My early WIP photos can be viewed at....
Up-dates will be posted in the next few weeks.Perhaps this may be of some help.
U-Boat Labratorium makes several WWI era submarines in 1:350 scale resin & brass
This is the German UB-1 class.
I sort of like the French Curie-class, with the open casing and PE deck.
Prices are not listed, but I inquired and they are reasonable with other resin & brass offerings on the market.
Yankee Modelworks has re-released the ex-Blue Water Navy model of the U-34 German submarine of WWI. The U-34 is the most successful submarine of all time (can't remember if it is number or tonnage sunk)
I'm pretty sure there are some (or at least one) 1:72 Austro-Hungarian U-boat kits out there somewhere. I remember reading a review of them/it a couple of years ago.
Nickolai produce some sets of 1:72 Austro-Hungarian U-boat crews.
