    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.

    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.

    I design in 1/72 the size is 97 cm long. Smaller scale makes me difficult to cut and assemble it.

    Outstanding job on this. I might even have to give it a go when it's released.
