Thanks, Si, there is talk about other Wappen (crests) coming out for the IX series. Accurate Model Parts (AMP) have waterline markings, as well as crests for the 7th and 9th Flotillas (snorting bull and laughing sawfish respectively).

The AM folks are just getting ramped up for this kit which hasn't been out all that long.
