If interested, Vespe Models from Ploiesti have a nice model of the U-boat being transported

They also have a model of the U-boat itself

I got the U-boat recently and it is very nicely made.

With info's from an article of russian author O.G.Vorobiev, and the Net :
The 250 tons Subs. (from Baltic Sea) have been extremely lightened, partially disassembled (turetts, batteryes, Diesels, electric engines, etc.). Their dimensions and weight have been adapted for transportations on Ge. motorways and by the river channels. A route standard: from Kiel (and Wilhelmshaven ?) Shipyard by Elba to Dresden, therefrom on a motorway to Ingolstadt (Regensburg ?) and then downwards Danube to Black Sea. Preliminary re-armed in Linz (in Viena ?). In Sep.1942 by the first U-24, 9, 19 arrived in Galatzi Shipyard for final restoring (final draft 3.9 m). Here, the first had been commisioned U-24 in Oct.1942, then U-9 on Nov.1942 and U-19 on Jan.1943. U-18, U-20, U-23 arrived in Galatzi spring of 1943 and joined the 30.U-Flotille on 6.05.43, 27.05.43 and 3.06.43.
