Hi


There used to be a guy in Canada that did them, or you could ask the Museum if they have a set, as a last resort I know that the NMM in Greenwich  www.rmg.co.uk/national-maritime-museum have a full set for the type seven so they just may have a set for the nine only thing is with the NMM is the cost.

Thanks for the reply
I called the museum , on hold so long my cell cut out, email them 2 weeks ago no reply.
I think I found a set in New York just emailed the guy, we will see
But thanks for the address for the NMM I will check that site out too.
Again thanks
Bill

Hi Bill


I do have a set for a type nine 40c, that is the one with the cutaway for deck.


It would take some time before I could get them copied.


One last thought did not Revel do a 1/72 U505

Hi Bill :-))


I still have a few boats, I am more into the ww2 "T" class, I did have an eight feet 9/40c in the old days,


The water that I now use is not suitable for sub's, so I now only sail tug's
