Type VIID flak deck

Postby alanroy » Fri Nov 17, 2006 3:50 pm

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!

...there's an aftermarket resin kit coming out to convert the Revell kit into a V11D. Try NKR models (Australia) site for a pic

Dummy me! I had heard about the conversion kit, but never thought to take a look at it!

Thanks for the kick!

Thanks again. Just took a look, the box top picture shows the earlier war boats, without the deck over the forward tubes for the flak weapons. Maybe someone will come out with a conversion for the conversion!
