U-130

Hello everyone,
I have decided to build my 1/72 IXC as the U-130 on her last patrol. (I have the same last name as the commander) However I can only find 1 photo of this particular boat. I would like to know it's configuration for the 13 day patrol ending on 12MAR43. I have a few reference books and the flood vent patterns match the U-505 although I haven't checked if the model itself matches the indicated pattern. I also have a number of pics of U505 from a visit to Chicago a couple years ago. Could/would anyone please tell me what the configuration was at that time. It arrived in Lorient after the 5th patrol on 30DEC42 and didn't set out for patrol #6 until 28FEB43, so there would have been ample time for major alterations. Is there an ultimate reference book that has all this information in it?
Thanks for all the help,
Dean
