Hello Helmut,

From the information on page 26 of Vom original zum Modell: IXC by Koehl and Niestle the vents and exhaust were the same on U 510 as on U 505. I don't have photos to confirm this but the book is a reliable source.

Sorry Don, I guess it was accidential put there by me in my effort to get to get a picture of which pages I need to check. Just a proof of that I am really not belonging to the IT generation. I am gradually starting to read the complete Skizzenbuch and I am afraid it shall take some time before I am through the book in this rural remote area of the world. I shall keep sending my comments as I read the book, but right now I got a message that my connection is reduced to 64 bits / sec.
Hello Mr. Tore,

There is a Index.pdf file in the Dropbox folder... Is this some corrections?

Hi Falo,
I didn't know about these new Eduard's photoetchings set, but I already bought these:
The Subs set is of equal quality of Eduard set, and so I cannot buy both of them.....

Continues the work on hull:
- modified the flooding holes under forward torpedo tubes;
- modified th flloding holes above the torpedo tubes;
- shortened the torpedo shutter doors.
Opinions welcome.
Hi Don,

the correct spelling is "Teddy".

I have read his autobiography "Nasses Eichenlaub", according to his own memories he was nicknamed "Teddy" because of the flabby kind he walks.

Hello Mr. Tore,

The latest version of Skizzenbuch is now uploaded into my Dropbox folder...

Hello Mr Tore,

I believe we are current on pages to be verified...  Your post number seems to be stuck at 2,249??? and mine is stuck at 697???  I have just updated page 98, 99, 464, 465, and 466 and I am going to update Dropbox in about 10 minutes.

I do have one question...

Which spelling is correct?

Reinhard "Teddi" Suhren

- OR -

Reinhard "Teddy" Suhren

I see both spellings for Teddi - Teddy on the internet?
