Default Late War U-218

Hey there,

Here is a Question for real U-Boat experts^^.I cant seem to find some very specific type of information that I really need. And its about the U-218 a Type VII D. I am planning on building a 1/72 scale R/C model of it…Late war version, I already have the Model kit from Revell (Wolf Pack). And now I have 3 Questions for you guys.

1)Did the late war Type Ds have 2x Single 20mm AA guns or 2x Twin 20mm AA guns?

2)Where can I get a 1/72 conversion kit for a Type 3 conning tower (aka Turmumbau 3)

3) Last and the hardest question is: What did the Platform look like that the 37mm was placed upon???. I know that the Platform covered 2 of the 5 mine silos, but what did it look like? And how was it placed on top of the Silos?. Does anybody have any pictures or blueprint of what it looked like?

If any of you could help me that would be great, since I haven’t found anything on google about the late war Type Ds.

Thanks

Or Subpirates, especially in Gantu's Forum or the Sub Reference Section. You'll need to become a paying member to access these sections but try posting a question in General Discussions which is open to the public. www.subpirates.com

Another place would be Caswell's model forum http://forum.sub-driver.com or the sub section of www.rcboot.de.

Thanks for your help. But the only problem is that the webside does not show a Pic of the platform where the 37mm AA gun was mounted on. I know that the 37mm gun was placed over the 1st 2 mine shafts. But thanks for your help^^
