Email received, thank you
Did manage to find an online image later yesterday, which I will post for folks here: http://www.uboataces.com/ref-insignia25.shtml#U-318
The image I received from Jim is much sharper. There is no doubt at all that the lettering is "Kuttel" Daddeldu...as it should be.
Thank you, Jim!
Good reminder, Falk. I included the Type VII limber hole diagram from Groner in my email to Tim & Ralph.
The main problem with the Revell kit - as with probably every kit - are the flood holes. Both their number and their configuration were differing between the boats. I am no expert on German u-boats but I know of some 35 variants for Type VII C boats.
To build a correct model will require to fill some of the holes or/and add some other holes.
