Hi all
I'm looking for a type vii hull pref. in 1/32 i know otw does but am not looking for a complete kit. If need be to get a robbe kit how much room is there to upgrade this kit to things such as static diving. working bow planes, torps, and so forth . i have a set of taubmans u995 plans that i can enlarge to make a 1/32 plug but wold rather buy one .

thanks for any info

John-
If you end up purchasing a Robbe kit, aren't you getting a complete kit? Just curious, what parts of the OTW model would you not want to use?

Sam.
Not that i wouldnt use certain parts id love to buy the complete kit from otw but at $1150 thats to big a knot for me to drop at once so i wanted to get a hull from a vendor our if someone had one that there not building and build it up over time . altho it will most likey cost a little more doing it that way it would be less hard on the wallet .

Here is a link to a decent Type VII model. It is 1/48th scale however!

Personally I'd go for the OTW kit, the best out there, worth the expense and not so difficult to construct- and Bob Dimmack is a very helpful fellow.

Remortgage the house, lol!
