U-Boat Type VII C by Chris Wauchop (Revell 1/72)
'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

Thanks guys, I'm not sure about adding figures yet. The boat will be displayed as a static model, not in a diorama setting so I'm still mulling over the crew situation. Thanks for the link Ned, I hasn't seen that one before and it's useful to know the Tamiya paints used. I much prefer these acrylics to any other sort of paint.
Here is another link to one of the most impressive U-Boat builds I think I've seen. It is a cutaway model which shows the interior details. I particularly like the interior shot in the dark with the light on: U-564 cutaway look. If you go to the bottom of the page, there are two more builds to marvel at if you click on 'next'.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
realy nice models, a pic i saved for communications
It's a lot of fun (and hard work) assembling it. When you have time take a look at my U99
How's the U boat coming along Adrian?
I want one where do I go to get please.harry. it
Any updates on this?? Are these kits ok? I have become interested in Submarines lately through work, I wouldnt mind building one of these myself ! Not built a model for a long long time so would be a struggle !!!
Yes, let's hear how it's all going! All this talk of models is peaking my interest. I just finished a 1:48 ME109 that I might take some photos of soon!
Yeah - let's see it!
As I said before, some hard work and a lot of patience but a lot of fun too
I did mine without figurines:
