Unfortunately I did not get the hoped-for help for the attack periscope casong inside conning tower, so I had to content myself with the material in my possession.
Here the first steps in scratch build....

P.S. : someone could tell me where to find a tutorial on how to fold and shape copper cables ?

One thing that I should point out, that is I believe the pressure hull at the time of capture not as the U505 was launched.

Remember on the U505 there were several rebuilds. Which one are you going for? Also what details are you looking for. 
The U505 at time of capture was different from the U505 as she came out to the yard.  Good Luck.

A sort of pressure hull and ribs

Again I had to keep in mind that I needed a retainer for my sculpture plans (as mentioned before), so I built a very quick and rough upper pressure hull from cardboard tube to check the position of pressure hull and planned retainer. The cardboard tube was designed to get a quick solution for further mounting plans for the retainer. But later I recognized that you would not see much of the pressure hull when the two halve were glued together. So I decided to keep the provisional arrangement in place, shoddy work lasts longest.

Later I revamped it with some elements like a winch, hatches and a inner structure for the conning tower.
