TYPE VII / Re: 1/48 Trumpeter U boat build Info-Conning Tower
« Last post by Raymic1 on 23 Feb , 2018, 12:41 »
Thanks Filipo and NZsnowman.


Saving the best for last Photo 141 is very good as it shows the Navigators instruments and position with great detail.
It looks like more modern photos show U995 has had the dials removed (and the Computer is on separate display) which made the photos confusing.


The main detail still missing is on the walls behind the commander when he is sitting at the attack periscope. The U570 report ones tantalizingly nearly show it.
Hopefully some more photos eventually surface on the web.
Thanks again.

... I was wondering if anyone has already done this already, or has 3d drawings etc and can share?


Sorry, I have no interior 3-D models. I am still working on the outside of the pressure hull.

TYPE VII / U Boat Simulation Soon to be Released
« Last post by Raymic1 on 23 Feb , 2018, 03:09 »
Interesting U boat simulation soon to be released.

I'm not sure how accurate it will be, but can sometimes be useful to get a "feel" for the interior modelling etc.
 Maybe just a basic game but the video is good and will be watching the reviews


ps Quite cool walking outside on the Turm...........

Hi Filippo
Thank you for these. Yes I have all of these except 114 is new. Is this U570 ?


It seems all internet photos are either limited ones from U995 or old ones from the U570 report.
It's a shame that Laboe curators haven't been able to update us with some more photos.
Even www.uboataces.com DVD which is great doesn't have access to the Conning tower.
I had hoped that some 'official' construction drawings existed.


Trying to put together jigsaw pictures of even a semi accurate elliptical walls with a concave ceiling is giving me a headache but with my limited skills Ill see how I go.
If I get something worthy of presenting Ill will of course share.


ps:I also have 3-4 more photos as well.
Thanks again.

Hi Raymic,
you are right, it isn't easy to find photois of the conning tower interior, probably because of the difficult to take photos inside the conning tower ( wide angle optics probably weren't in the age ); about the drawings, I didn't see anyone...
I post you what I have...
Cheers

Dear Fillipo and NZSnowman
Thank you for your wonderful photos and replies. And they will come very useful when I progress onto the Exterior.


Unfortunately I apologise as I was not clear.


I need the inside of the Conning Tower were the Commander sits at his attack periscope.
There are not many interior Conning tower shots maybe 10 or so on the internet that I can find . I have photos off the internet of Color U-995 and some black and white original ones which give me limited information.


Due to the very small interior and no public access to U 995 I guess not many photos exist?


Has anyone got interior drawings or more photos of the Type Vii conning tower that show the Internal layout?


I already have David Westwoods Anatomy of a Uboat drawings but even they are not accurate with enough detail.


PS Fillipo your modelling is superb on your blog. I will follow you with much interest.
thanks again
Raymic

Hi Raymic1,
I'm Filippo from Padova, Italy; I'm building the Trumpy U552 too ( see my thread opened in this forum ).
I have hundreds of images of conning tower, found on internet; I think it's quite easy to superdetail the inner of connning tower utilizing the material you can found on internet.
Anyway, I share with you some drawings I have ( more on next days ).
I'll hoper that you'll open a new thread on your building report.
Cheers.
Filippo
