    I don't believe this!

    Another fantastic photo of a U Class. So clear, so detailed.

    It's even got the mistakes I made when I soldered the RDF aerial!

    Thank you! Thank you!

    (My superstructure now goes in the bin.)

    Actually, seriously Richard. That is good and very useful.

    And in answer to Andyn elsewhere in the Forum always have a cover story. So as you advance to the Exhibition stand where your colleagues are ready with "supportive" comments on the last year of your life's work. Such as:

    "Actually this is the late September 1943 variant used on Arctic convoys with multiple pom poms and roundabouts etc.etc."

    You get the idea!

    That's why I like to build either a sub that was lost on it's first patrol or a concept boat...
