Hi Simon,
is it possible for you share with us the drawings that you posted on first page of this post ? They seem to be not yet available, when one tries to open them....
I'm am an U-Boat enthusiast, and the drawings will be more pretious for my 1/48 U-552 building....
I'm now saving on my computer all your late drawings, still available on this post, but for the early ones only you can make them available again...
Thanks in advance, anyway...I love your work.
Respect.
Filippo

Hi Simon,
I'll gladly wait your help, essential for my scratchbulding work; as I posted on a specific post, I'll intend to scratchbuild the whole load-bearing structure of the external hull casing, outside the pressure hull, obviously with all the tubes, valves and equipments present on the pressure hull and on hull casing; for the moment I'm working in the bow section, and that zone is the priority for me, now.
If it is not a violation of the site's rules, I give to you e to all the U-Boat's funs that can help me, my personal e-mail : filippo@saracostruzioni.eu
Any help will be welcome.
Thanks in advance.
Filippo

I was missing my U-boat so I spend the weekend add rivets and individual steel plates to the tower casting of U-1308.

Since my last post about the expansion Tank for the Main Ballast and Reserve Fuel Oil Tank 2, I decided to completely redo the saddle tanks. I have spent about 100 hours so far improving the accurate and their profile. I now believe they are as near to the original German saddle tanks as I can make them. Here are a few pictures of the work so far.

Also for some unknow reason my Flickr account has stopped working, so here a link to the my new Flickr account. https://www.flickr.com/photos/155197643@N06/albums

The crew of U-1308 wish everyone a merry Christmas and a wonderful new year!

Hi Snowman,


thanks for the 3-D-drawings. To repeat myself I'am delighted with your thread.


Just one question about the sub construction of the wooden deck: Do you have a a complete top view of the metallic construction from bow to stern?


Once again thanks for sharing and best regards!
falo

The deck framing is about 80% finish. I am still working on it.

  • Most of the stern section is finish just need to check a few things.
  • The mid-section is finish (just remember that this deck frame is for a Type VIIC/41 and a late war Type VIIC, additional hatches and schnorchel).
  • Bow section is not finish, I need better wartime photo's of the framing to finish this section.
Below is a extra large version of the deck framing.

If anyone is using this drawing, I just noted that two of the hatches around the aft bridge casting are incorrect position by 500 mm. I will update this part of the model and post a new pictures.

Hi Snowman,


thanks again, I'm curious about it how the Atlantic Bow (catchwords "underwater refueling") will look.
Please look at the attached picture, IMO it looks like a wooden mock-up of a VIIC/41, I suppose it is not very helpful for your work but I have never seen it before.


Regards

Great photo!

I have seen this photo before, but never this clear and sharp, and not the full-size photo. It will be very useful! Lot of new details which I will add to my 3-D model

A big thanks!
