Hi Glen,
 
Don't know if you have seen these, they are the deck of the U 534 without the wooden planking I would imagine that a IXc would have a very similar substructure.

 ;) Thanks Jon!
Just what is needed to help anyone with a scratch built pressure hull.
I am waiting now for the three Eduard PE sets to get started.  I have an older PE deck from Oto I am going to use for this first build.
Regards,
Dan

Pressure Hull information now being posted
« Reply #25 on: 21 Feb , 2014, 08:21 »
I have started building my "faux" inner pressure hull and getting detailed measurements for making the tops of the internal saddletanks.  The TOP of the internal saddletanks form the BOTTOM of the main flooding channel. 

Go to my U-505 build site, and click on "Pressure Hull" to see more information.
Pictures and more details to follow.

(For what it's worth, I used a similar approach to what I did with U-673 inner pressure hull.)

 :) Hi Glenn!
Great start on the pressure hull build! Looking foward to each  new post to see haw to do this on a Type IX! You have some of the same ideas I had trying to figure this all out!!! ;D   So I will follow your lead when I get ready for the pressure hull on my U-505, and later maybe a U-805!
Thanks Again!

Nice job Glenn. :)  Have you received your PE deck set from Oto yet?

Internal Structures
« Reply #28 on: 23 Feb , 2014, 14:53 »
Hi y'all   :)

I made some good headway on my U-505 build over the weekend, and updated the BUILD SITE.


Here are some pictures that should (hopefully) make things clearer about the internal structure of the Type IXC.





INNER PRESSURE HULL:
The INNER PRESSURE HULL is the round section in the middle of the bulkhead.
The diameter of the pressure hull changes throughout the boat.

In the kit, the diameters of the pressure hull are the following (at the indicated bulkheads):
  • Bulkhead A:   50mm  (2")
  • Bulkhead B:   57mm  (2-1/4")
  • Bulkhead C:   57mm  (2-1/4")
In the kit, the top (curve) of the pressure hull is ~12mm from the top of each bulkhead.


SADDLETANKS (internal):
The SADDLETANKS are the shaded sections on either side of the inner pressure hull; contained within the hull.
Right above the saddletank is the main flooding channel; the TOP of the saddletank forms the BOTTOM of the main flooding channel.

 :) Hi Glenn!
Great stuff on the Pressure Hull!
Question: How are you going to do the saddle tanks?
Thanks Again!
