thank you,Si,for the size,think that would be a bit small for the sizing that I,would need,:rolling:
Yep, 28mm figures are way too big for this, unless you adapted the sub to make it look more like a midget type.

Si, you spoil sport. I was hoping to have a bit of fun with this part-fictitious nonsense (Apart from where she was lost, which is correct)....:loudly-crying:

Monica - For your scale, you might probably be better off thinking about the Revell 1/72 scale U. Boat.

I think I have the two halves of the 1/72, messed about with and painted, no deck and no conning tower, if I can find it you are welcome to it for just postage.

Moni' I don't know if I can be of some help too, but I have the Revell 1/72 U. Boat VIIC / 41 'Atlantic Version' This had an extension to the rear conning tower to accommodate two extra A.A. weapons. You could still build the middle section without this 'add-on'.

I do intend starting the build shortly, but if I can help along with Si, with photos and sizes, I would be only too happy to do so.......

Cheers.
Ron

Hi Monica, That picture is a VIIC. The kit I have has an extension to the rear of the conning tower for the A.A guns.

Rather than clog up our friend Si's thread, I'll send you the pictures etc. via a P.M. very soon.....:thumb2:

Not sure what you have planned Moni, but the overall dimensions of a Revell 1/72 type viic are: 94.9 x 26.4 x 13.9 cm. Or: just over 37 x 10.4 x 5.5 inches, if that helps.
