    I see a Viking ship (boat's emblem) on the front of the tower and laughing fish on the side (flotilla emblem). What am I missing?

    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

      I do see a tiny viking ship on the front now... I missed that.
      I guess a boat can have two emblems? I didn't get that from

                Looks to me as a nice boat, at least a good platform to build all the extra functions.

                As for the emblems, the vinking ship is about the U901 itself, the green swordfish translate itself to serving the 9 th flotilla, which is strange because it served the 11th flotilla, the emblem accourding to Uboat net shows a polarbear standing on a conningtower instead of the swordfish.
