I am new to this forum. I have been on several other ship and U-Boat Forums. My father is a Kriegsmarine Veteran. He was on U-69 and later U-805. He spent 14 months in a P.W. Camp here in the US. He returned to the U.S with my Mother and my brother in 1949. He was the Trop. tech. on U-805. He is now 86 years old. So that is the main reason for my interest in U-47 and U-Booten in general. I am also an avid modeler. I am currently working on a 1/72 Type VIIC/41 model of U-295. Complete with the two Bibers on board. I am also presently doing research on U-47. I want to build a 1/72 Type VIIB converting the Revell Type C back to the earlier Type B.
Any help would be great!
