I studied the pictures of U995.
Funny but see this photo from the Haynes book. They printed it upside down......

Hi everybody,
I made the first attempt to build the inner conning tower floor, with all the drainage holes...I'm not totally satisfied with it, maybe I'll do another try...
In the meantime I started with the attak periscope post, and precisely with the commander seat; in Trumpeter's model the seat is too flat, and I tried to give to it more "thickness"; now I'm making the seat support with spring system...
Stay tuned...

Looking good Bianco. Here's a few pics of my Tower. Nearly finished the inside..... :)
Bits still blutacked on.
Lots still to go, weathering etc.

Hi Raymic,
your conning tower is fantastic.....I'll use your model as a reference for some missing details of my model....
One question: what about the starboard side of the conning tower inside ? Do you want to leave it open ? If not, have you some photos of that side of your model ? And even more: can you post a couple of photos of the front side of conning tower inside ?
I'm happy to have a partner in this Trumpeter's model building: you are the only one who seems interested in this building report...
Cheers


P.S. : keep your building thread up to date with the photos that you posted on mine one...

Hi everyone,
as promised I post the photos of the commander's seat on attack periscope inside the conning tower, in comparison with the Trumpeter's one...

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 ?

Thank you for your appreciation,
unfortunately I have to stop the work on attack periscope casing inside conning tower, because I have not photos of the right side of it, just the visible side on my model....
I post the last photos of the casing, waiting to find some new photos....(  I haven't had any answer from "welcome@marinebund.de" )
Cheers
