One that could do well "on the other side of the pond", used in both WWI & WWII, is the U.S. Navy's S boat. There was a vac kit once upon a time, 1:72 IIRC, but I've never laid eyes on one. Should do okay in one of the smaller collector scales...or even joining the growing ranks of 1:72 IM sub kits.

Pit-Road used to produce a 1/350 K Class submarine:

It's now out of production, but one might turn up on an auction site or somewhere.

I believe there are some resin kits of Austro-Hungarian WW1 boats (I looked into this having just edited a book on the subject). Not sure if the RN had any Holland design boats during WW1, but three of the Austrian boats were licence built Hollands.
