what a grat work
your model looks just KILLER
any chance for some tutorial?
Very impressive! I have the Fly Model VII/IX sub kit but haven't got up the nerve to build either one yet.
An excellent thread kooklik, thank you very much.
Today I just finished designing of section2 keel. I prepared a slot on the last 3 vertical keels for snorkel slot on the deck.
Rhino sometimes hangs while i unrolled or using some features. Does Anyone know how to fix this error? I have to save everytime before unroll some complex surface.

Ready to print out parts on A4 size.
I have no idea to join section 1 and 2. Help me please ...
Should i join keel before attaching hulls or or finish all hulls and join them later?
Again Rich , what is the Net Cutter ?:???:
Net Cutter as used on WWII early type VII U-Boats.
Net Cutters were used to CUT harbor defense netting in the early days of the U-Boat war.
Thank you Rich.
I'm one of U-Boats fan.
Could you tell me , why did Type VIIC remove deck naval gun and added AA guns instead?
In the early days of the U-Boat war, the main deck gun was used to finish off
the kill after the torpedo attack. Later in the war, sonar and radar usage was refined
and surface attacks were used less and less till the main deck gun was removed from most U-Boats.
U-Boat Command added AA guns to the aft wintergarden areas to
help defend against air attacks while on the surface and when
recharging batteries. For a time, U-Boat Command ordered the Gray Wolves
to remain on the surface and attempt to fight off air attacks but this proved
to be a poor tactic for the U-Boats with their thin skinned hulls.

- Hope this helps -
thats going to be a very nice models in the end i must make it at the moment its reales
1/72 for sub its big no?
Great looking design and build
I design in 1/72 the size is 97 cm long. Smaller scale makes me difficult to cut and assemble it.
Thanks alot Tim.
I need more details of blueprints show details of exterior (hull , conning tower ect.) I have only interior blueprints from http://www.heiszwolf.com/subs/plans/plans.html
Perhaps http://www.wunderwaffe.narod.ru/WeaponBook/Typ7/index.htm might help - use www.translate.ru to render it in English.
Outstanding job on this. I might even have to give it a go when it's released.
I'll definitely be giving this one a go! Simply great work
Thanks for replies and comments. After keel design and corrected some design mistakes. Today I finished section 2's keel.
