Details U-995
« on: 27 Feb , 2014, 02:53 »
Find on an old harddrive some fine details of the U-995. Guess, I took the pictures during a visit in 2012 or 2011. Maybe these pictures can support one of the guys here who have plans building a typeseven/41. Please feel free to use it for your needs. On request I can post or send files with much higher resolution.

I subdivide the photos in the following sections: "Total Shots", "Bow", "Conning Tower", "Stern", "Tauschkoerper Bolt" and some "Vents" from the saddle tank area of the boat. Starting now with two total shots of the U995.


Hope you find a use for the pix

Falo.
Very good and valuable for modellers. I wish you had some similar photos from the engineroom and controlroom. I shall try to give some remarks in my mailbox, partly based on you excellent photos as to the mistakes or negligence done during the years of "restoration" on the old U 995.

Hi Tore,


I'am sure I have also made photos of the inner sections. J just have to seek on my harddrives. In digital matters I'am very unpicked. I will start tracing these pictures and post them after I located them - cross my heart ...

Hi Falo.
Jolly good, thanks to your photos I just found an interesting detail on the fuelcompensating system which I shall post as soon as I get the sketches ready.

@ tore
I have found the mentioning pixs from the inner sections last night. Overall more than 110 pictures. Thank you for encouraging me to post these photos too. But first of all I will show some more pixs from outside the uboat to complete this chapter before I start posting the inner section pictures. This will take place during the next days. After that is time for your advice if todays details of the U995 are accurate for the modelers of the WW2 version. I look forward to your comments.

@ all:
Hope the pictures could be a good backing for your your proposed typeseven/41 projects, but according to Tore, we have to take this pictures with care, because the restoration resp. the "renaturation" to a WW2-boat was probably not easy to manage.

Falo

So let's start with hull details:
