Hello there! Newbie here.
I’m looking for some information on the U-Boat type VIID, the minelayer version of the Type VII. I recently acquired the Revell boat.
Where would one find diagrams and/or photos of the later war appearance, where the forward mine tubes were covered over with a deck for flak guns? Was this simply one of the Wintergardens adapted from the type VIIC, on pylons over the mine tubes rather than being enclosed around the base? I have found only one picture, that being on the U218 site, but it is from enough of a distance that by the time you increase the size to where you can see it, it’s too heavily pixilated to make anything out.
Many thanks for any help you can provide!
