Greetings All. I am working on a couple 1/350 Type VIIs. First is an A. Does anybody have pics or sketches of the stern? The kit has a semblence of a deck mounted stern tube and the dual rudders. I want to try to get it looking correct. Boat will be U-35 off Spain in 36. Photos show "neutrality" strips on front and both sides of the conn and across the deck , forward of the 88mm mount. Would it have been aft of the conn too? Other boat is U-47. Any clues on her color during the Scapa Flow op? Photos appear dark so I'm thinking Dunklegrau 51 or Schlickgrau 58. Thanks in advance for any pointers. TJK
