Look at the work of this French modeler:

Although he doesn't care too much the precision, there are many interesting hints...

Anyone that wants to repost their pics on this subject it would be great.
I'll look for mine later tonight after I get home from work.

The book "U-boat war patrol" "The hidden photographic diary of U 564" by Lawrence Paterson has several pics on this area.

Has anyone built the Andrea 1/32 Type VIIC U-boat Deck Gun?

I am wondering if it is worth the price of USD$175

Personally, I would rather now put in my own components for inner pressure hull shapes & components.  They will be lighter, and easily made with basic materials.   Unless you are doing a cutaway, everything is hidden after the hull is closed up.

Yes, on my U-625 site, the "Hull Assembly" section addresses the cast resin inner pressure hull pieces.
Also see my U-673 site for information about making your own inner pressure hull.
