Here is original tombak Deumer u-boat from my collection for comparison, although a different hardware variant.

Cheers,

Hi Wolfgang,

Out of all u-boat makers only tombak Deumers and Hymmens lack a propellor on the the submarine, and they both share similiar art-deco design. Here is my tombak Hymmen for comparison.

Cheers,

Hubert
