Apparently sail markings became rarer because the use of snorkels meant that the subs spent less time surfaced.

But the sail art on ww2 German subs was great so maybe add some anyway

Really beautiful renders!
I believe that the waterline should be raised to a level just beneath the flood-holes.

Wow, really, really beautiful!

Now I guess you could add hypothetical details in absurdum...
Maybe it would have had a door in the aft side of the fin (one like those on type XXI fin side) for access to the aft platform?
Maybe it would have hade more small flood holes (like on XXIII) on the after top of the fin?
Maybe...

However - super nice renders!

Here is a model made by a german model builder sometime around 1990.
This pic is from one of Eberhart Rösslers books.
It's the Type XXIX G which was an electro-uboote version of the hydrogen-peroxide powered Walther-turbine Type XXVI W.
No idea how accurate it is in details like flood-holes, but it looks plausible.

Aha, a much better pic of the model there.
Du you have any more information about the model?
Maybe who made it and based on what information it was built?
