A few years ago I made this (large) 1: 144 U-boat diorama. It is a combination of a harbor and a dry dock. The XXI boat is from Revell (the one with an interior, I had to close the open side of the boat) and both XXIII are from Trumpeter. The figures are by Noch and Preiser and the boats are by Artitec. The vehicles are converted Herpa. Lighting is built in.
