VIIC/41 - Schematices drawing
« on: 06 Jan , 2009, 12:19 »
Hello All

I would to introduce myself. I'm Simon Morris from New Zealand. For the last 10 months I have been drawing a 1:60 scale of a general VIIC/41. Durying this time a few quection pop up about the VIIC/41. I am hope that you guys can help my with a few  :)

Here is my first question.
I am looking for the other none water markings, I have seem to found mark II, III & V. I am looking for mark I & IV. I am thinking they are both on the port side of the boat, but i can not found them in the pictures i have of U-995. Does anyone found where they are?

Hi Simon! Welcome to AMP forum.
I just had the look at the drawings, and i must say im impressed.
Looks like you have wast knowledge in that field.
The poster looks superb, and compartments are full of detail.
I love it.
I can see you had put the capstan on the deck, do you have any reference regarding that part? Im struggling like mad trying to find any good shot of the capstan, and so far i wasnt successful.
Hope to see more of your work here. ;D

I may be wrong, but not all of them had that opening. I didnt replicate it on my UZO. ;)
Another thing- the column is straight- not conical.

I know that least some had 2 handles that were "C" shaped (go back to the column and not the base).

Good job Simon. I like it a lot. Good attention to detail. I just compared your bow with my model- its neer identical, apart from GHG array- more sensors in mine.

   Since the artwork is of a viic/41 and u-995 in particular..Shouldn't the bow have a "Balcongerat" rather than an "S-Gerat"... ?
