isn't this called the "attack room", position of commander during attack?
it's an extension of the pressure hull

Yes- you can look it up here Simon: http://u-552.blogspot.com/2008/04/conning-tower-bottom-part.html

Hope it helps. ;)

Wow, Your model looks great!
Now You just need too "print" it on resin 3D-printing machine and get a beutyfull U-boot.
I would like too ask about few things - I suspect it's a 3D model - is it? What software is Your model made in - AutoCAD, 3D Studio, or something diffrent? What kind of technical drawing reference do You have?

Thank You,
Piotr.

The drawing is in 2D only. I am using CorelDraw X4. At the moment there are 70 different layers (for example I are display the boat with or without deck hatches – so you can view that is under the hatches etc...) and there are over 109,000 objects in the drawing.

So my first impression looking Your plates was right - Corel. Next I thought "It can be 3D work" but I was wrong. If You can use some 3D soft i would encourage You to make a solid model basing Your Corel work - I can see You have both great skill and time ;)
I'm using Corel sometimes to color architecture designs and every work over 30,000-40,000 objects is killing me - I'm realy impressed with all the details!
BTW - Can you optimize pictures in some way (just save them as a jpg files), Corel pdf files work pretty slow.

Simon, your work is beautiful!  If you ever considering selling a set of your graphic drawing I would fork over the money!

Yes - I have only just recently started to think about selling the file of the poster. If I decide to sell the poster, I will only sell it after it 100% finish. However, if people do not want to pay for a poster. I am planning to release for free, a full set of black and white lines plans for the VIIC base on my drawing and all the other plans I have ;D

I have also been thinking I could customize the drawing to any Type VII

As much as i like the colouring, I would opt for a more technical sample that are more intended on scratching a inner hull and other details. So black and white - maybe with measurement.

But its a nice poster and it may find a audiece - I dont have wallspace for it though.
