Hi Bill

Yes you are right. I am 99.99% sure that no VIIC/41 have both on at the same time. I have all the different war time sensors on different layers in the drawing. I am able to turn them on or off, this time I had the Balcongerat off & the S-Gerat on. I am mainly basing my drawing from U-1105 & U-995, however, I am thinking about adding all the main sensors to it, just to show poeple all the different sensors on onboard  :)

♦ I am going to add the FuMO-61 Hohentwiel-U (Radar) and FuMO-35 Athos (Radar Warning Receiver) on to my VIIC/41 but I believe that the only Type VII with both on at the same time was U-249  ???
♦ Also U-1105 was cover in Alberich, I don't want to cover my boat in this as I don't want to cover all the detail of the hull. I may put it in a different layer in the drawing.
♦ I want to add Tarnmatte (Radar absorbent material) to the Schnorchel but I unsure how many VIIC/41 had this ???
♦ I have also added gas bottles for the FuMT 30 Aphrodite (Radar decoy), it seen that many Type VII carry these onboard at the end of the war but again I am unsure if any VIIC/41 carry them ???
♦ I also believe all the late war VIIC/41 that had the Balcongerat installed from the beginning did not have the GHG installed and the UT transducers (underwater telegraphy) are also missing ???



Hi Siara, here that I learn about the revets base on U-995.

    G'day Simon...Not a bad idea showing all the sensors and/or radar equip. Just a thought, though, It wouldn't hurt to have the bits/items color coded with maybe footnotes at the bottom explaining whatever...Of course it's just a thought...Your the artist ! (Your work has been helpful, Thanks !)
                                                                      Cheers/Regards..Bill in the U.S.A.

Hi Bill
I think your right about the footnotes, just been thinking about a way to display it and making it look good. Have also been thinking about adding a few more u-boats toys  ;D


Hi Siara
I'm not 100% sure about the VIIC/41 having more doublers, as almost the entire bow of U-995 has been replace so I can not tell how far the doublers extant forward. I have seen some pictures with full length and other pictures the same as your ??? Also it look like this section of hull has also been replace (the red box) so I unsure of spacing of the revets ???

I have noted in some pictures (I can not remember if they were from models or real) that the three bow Tie Downs (correct term?) were open on the top. The pictures above are from U-995, they are all the same style with a closing hinge on top. Does anyone know if they were

Hi Bill

While working on my VIIC/41 deck today, I noted that some of the high pressure air piping looked incorrect. So I did some researched and use the U-570 Schematic drawings. Using plates 11, 16 and 32. I have came up with a updated layout.



Plate 11 http://www.uboatarchive.net/U-570Plate11.htm
Plate 16 http://www.uboatarchive.net/U-570Plate16.htm
Plate 32 http://www.uboatarchive.net/U-570Plate32.htm

Nice work

Since english isnt my native language please forgive me, but I have the impression that conning tower is the presurrized part of the tower, sail, fairwater - or whatever its called??

isn't this called the "attack room", position of commander during attack?
it's an extension of the pressure hull (as You did on your beautifull subs"

I think conning tower, sail, fairwater, office and kiosque (for the gallophilic) are all the same.

So You miss the position of the attack room above the "Zentrale"...........
