Much appreciated!

Thanks! I might add that the hulls have holes to mount the guns, torp tubes and masts. Everything assembles quick and easy.

A drawback is that the S-100 could/should have a 37mm gun astern but the sprue only provides for a quad 20mm (which really wasn't used much). I hope Warlord releases a weapons sprue for each side.

That would be nice.

From some of the late-war accounts, seems like about one boat in six to nine had the quad 20mm, and was usually assigned (presumably) to be tail-end Hans, to discourage pursuers and aircraft.

Of course, those 37mm pop guns could do that too.

As a friend already reminded me, it's a game.
