Do the postions look ok (Yellow = Lut and Red = Fat)?
Hmm... no, but I need to check it properly. I have access to fat-torpedoes, so I can make an exact measurement, and I can probably make an accurate location of the Lut-panel by measurung my Lut-gyroscope (I'm not sure when I get an opportunity, but I'll try to remember it the next time I get out to the torpedobattery).

Here is an updated list of german torpedoes with various operational status in WWII. It's still not 100%, but improved a lot since my first attempt...

Here are some measurments regarding the position of the FAT/LUT-panels. Unfortunately, I have only had access to a FAT-torpedo and a LUT I gyroscope at the time being, and I haven't been able to dig up good photos of the LUT-panel on a torpedo...
I hope you find these helpful though, and perhaps you can extrapolate other measurements if needed.
