    Some nice 1/72nd figures could be used to "dress boat", german infantry would work well seeing they dont make U-boat crew, although many years ago there was a company that did
    this lot still do they make different sets not just this one just search 1/72 cmk and you should find someName:  $(KGrHqJ,!hQE6,HENk-9BOs9PzhCSw~~60_12.jpg

    1/72 scale U-Boat figures are available in resin on the net. Here's an interesting linky on a build of this model that may be of use to you Adrian.

    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'.

    It's a lot of fun (and hard work) assembling it. When you have time take a look at my U99

    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:
