    Right then fellas, I must be mad but I've just bought an enormous Type 7 for myself and the girlfriend to build, and now I need some decent reference photos... Anyone here have any?

    My email is andyn@live.co.uk if you want to email them.

    Cheers.

    As Gantu says, Andy...there are so many different versions and varieties of the Type V11c, they even differed from boat to boat in the same yard.

    Two main things for you...first, choose an actual boat to base your model on, then you'll have some idea of what will be going where. And then get hold of a copy of the book "Anatomy of a ship...the Type V11 U-boat", there are normally a few on Amazon. Those series of books are a proverbial bible for modellers, they are full of photos, drawings and information.

    Then go hunting the 'net for photos...there's stacks of pics of various Type V11's.

    Somewhere on my desktop pc I have a stack of Type V11c stuff, I'll go hunting later and send you a zip file.

    Ok...are you doing the standard tower layout with a single AA gun in the wintergarten? Or a later one with an extended platform? Or the version with a four barrel Flak cannon? Or the U-Flak type? Every one is different...trust me.

    Righty then... Mine will be one of the ones with the single barrelled AA guns on the back, Black under the waterline, with a black deck and camo pattern down the side.

    Nice having a milling machine to play with now, cos I can cheat with all the flooding slots...
