Last week Don, pick up a mistake on my drawing. I had the vent for the MB3 opening upward (fig. 2) it should open downward. I have included the new drawing below (fig. 1).

So do you have a budget and a shipyard yet? Looking even better every time.

How about crowdfunding a U-Boat? We could take turns in the weekends with it ;D

While working on the Fuel oil compensating system, Don noted that my updated MB3 openings looked too big. After rechecking the dimensions, I found it was slightly too big. While checking the dimensions I also recheck my photo’s and noted that the MB3 vent was a much simpler construct than I previously believe. I previously believe it was a casting, however, the photo suggests a simple plate metal construct.

I match the viewpoint of the boat and the angle of the sun. Figure 4 seem to best match the photo.


Fig. 1. Wing deflector, Blauschwarz 58/2.


Fig. 2. Wing deflector, Black, surface roughness 15%.


Fig. 3. Wing deflector, Black, surface roughness 20%.


Fig. 4. Wing deflector, Black, surface roughness 30%.

Hi Dougie

I was trying to render my U-boat today from the top view and I noted that my original RAL 9005 was getting completely washed out. In top view my original RAL 9005 looked light grey. I played around with the hue & gloss and also changed the RGB from 10,10,10 to 14,14,16.  I think the new colour looks much closer to the colour photo.

Also the sun spot looks like the right size and shape, maybe it could be a little less glossy.

Hi Simon,

Fig2 and Fig7 look really good. The sun spot might be thought to be a bit glossy given that the black paint would have been matt. But the two photos showing the sun shining on black wind deflectors (U 335 and also the late war shot) look the same as your drawings. So your drawings are correct (assuming the sun is shining from above).

Keep up the very good work.

Dougie
