    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.

    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 uboat.net.

    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?

    A beauty for sure... Not to criticize, but didn't U901 have a different emblem? I looked it up and I found it was a Viking ship.

    Or maybe no?

    Cool nickname! :D
    The Arkmodel might be a good boat to start but the 1/48 scale makes it substantially smaller than my Robbe’s. I don’t mind going bigger or staying the same, but a good 16% smaller size would bother me I think. The 1/30 scale sounds interesting, what kind of boat is that?
