George-
the "vom original zum modell- uboottyp XXIII" has the best photos, even though the text is german.

a few photos in the Squadron u-boat softcover book, and some in the large volumes available for U-boats...

what are you looking for specifically?

Hi Sam, I'm looking for info on how the tower is attached to the hull. Is it a smooth seam or welded or is there a slight gap between the two. I'm actually nearing completion of this kit. I have to say that this model has bee a pure joy to build. I don't think I cranked out a kit this fast.

let me check for you at home tonight...
page 28, of the vom original shows a pretty flat joint between the tower and the raised are of the deck where the tower sits. It may be welded there, but it's a really clean joint.
