    Hi Dave, that looks great. Is this that the old Revell kit? I have fancied making one of these myself. Have you seen the new larger scale kits now on the market? My problem would be finding space for one though.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade,
    I think you are right about the Revell kit, it is so long ago that i made this one. It is about 19 ins long, I took a couple of weeks to make it as i was quite ill at the time this was in 97, i have,nt seen the new large model that would be great to make, but as you said where do you keep it. I only have my war room to keep my collection and it is really full at the mo. Do you have any links for the large one i can look at?. Hope you get you sub, you will enjoy making it.

    My great great Uncle was killed onboard HMS Dunvegan by U-46 which was same model as U-47 and also a snorting bull emblem u-boat from floatile.
    Are these models available anymore to make up???

    Hi bikerboy,
    Yes you can still get these models, even though they are an old type, I have seen them on the ebay model site this is where you will find most of the old stock of models. The type V11 and V11C
    is i think the most common ones. best of luck with it.
    It would be nice to get one as your family have history with this sub,.

    Hi All,
    This is a great little book for all us armchair U Boat captains out there. It is written by Jost metzler commander of U69, it tells of the forty four man crew members in detail, on the 500 ton type
    V11C, U boat early Feb, 1941.
    It,s a really good book with some nice photo,s included.
