Normally I would caution trying to display moment in a diorama but that display will look amazing. I guess it is because its the boat in motion on the figures.

I'm just reading a history of S boats. They are not the outstanding success allied coastal forces publications seen to portray.

Thanks Larry.
(have send you a PM )

Diameter : 0.4- Distance : 1.5 mm
I tried Archer Decals... but they all broke up when i placed them on the model
Luckily i found these,
There the best, you can chose your own diameter,distance between the rivets and height , white on the reverse side so you know which side is up.
They are made to order....

The where a nuisance but they weren't as successful as the U boats in the early years of the war,
But nevertheless they looked realy cool !

I havent the correct skills (bought all the Valejo products) yet to make the water look realistic enough, i tryed some test..... but i was not happy wit the result it looks good for 1/72 but its harder in 1/35 scale the boat is a meter long.
