TYPE VII / Re: Pressure hull forward cap
« Last post by bianco64squalo on 29 May , 2017, 13:51 »
Thanks Maciek, and sorry for my anxiety, but this is only a result of my U-Boat's enthusiasm and passion....unfortunately the informations I look for are not easily available on books and on internet, and so the passion is not sufficient for the purpose...so your support is so pretious for me, as experts of U-Boat as you are.,,,
Thanks again....I'll need your support again...
Cheers.

TYPE VII / Re: Pressure hull forward cap

Hi Filippo,

No one other help ?


You have asked the question 12 hours ago. I would suggest you more patience.


I'd like to know, exactly, the devices and the shaft passing through all the holes visible on the cap, because I intend to scratchbuild all the connections from the cap to the respective devices....


The description of the attached image:
1. shaft for anchor slipping hook
2. shafts for opening the muzzle doors
3. compressed air lines for launching naval mines
4. compressed air lines for operating the naval mines stop latch
5. pipes for draining the torpedo tubes
6. air lines for venting torpedo tubes


U-Boats not fitted with mines launching gear did not have 3) and 4)
However, U 552 could lay mines from her torpedo tubes (note in this KTB).


Here another couple of photos.
Some question:
- was the U-Boat in the photo with red signs an U-Boat Type VIIC ?


That's right, it is type VIIC U-Boat.


- the red circled object was present in all U-Boat tubes ?


I do not see any red circled object, you mean red rectangle? If so, this support was present between upper and lower pairs of tubes.


- were the ribs indicated in red present in all U-Boat tubes ?


Yes, the ribs were present in all U-Boat tubes.

Maciek

TYPE VII / Pressure hull forward cap
« Last post by bianco64squalo on 28 May , 2017, 23:26 »
Hi everybody, I'm working on forward section of U-552; I post a couple of photos of forward pressure hull cap, one of a real U-Boat and one of my model, not yet finished....I'd like to know, exactly, the devices and the shaft passing through all the holes visible on the cap, because I intend to scratchbuild all the connections from the cap to the respective devices....
Any help is welcome.
Thanks in advance.

ALL other U-boats / Re: Type XXVII (Seehund) Colour help needed!
« Last post by Natter on 26 May , 2017, 10:31 »
Some information, inclluding four schemes, can be found here -
http://modellboard.net/index.php?topic=32687.0
I have no knowledge of the painting of the Seehund itself, but the appearance of the torpedoes on those schemes are ridicilus. Pure fantasy! :-(

Sadly, most modellers seem to follow the manufacturers instructions blindly, ending up with mostly accurate vessels and torpedoes that doesn't even resembel the real thing (thus "destroying" the whole model - from my point of view). I don't think I have ever seen a model with proper german torpedoes (considering both colours and other details).

Hi Maciek (My Friend),


I will not change the spelling of your first name in Skizzenbuck, unless you would prefer the Official Document spelling. It's not a big deal to make that change, I just a search and replace in 5 of the word documents and then join the 9 PDF files to create the Skizzenbuck 11 x 17 - M + I.PDF file.


Regards,
Don_
