    Don't laugh! The Royal Navy (of course! :rolleyes:) had 18 K-Class steam -propelled subs built, starting with a 1913 design. Six were lost to accidents and only one was involved in action, with a dud torpedo strike against a U-Boat. They were all scrapped by 1931.
    The world's first steam sub was the 'Ictineo II', launched, under steam, in 1867! It actually made 13 successful dives, one of which lasted 7 1/2 hours.

    The USN, RN and the Russians all currently use steam propelled submarines.

    OK so the heat source is a bit different.:p

    I want to look at your Steam threat soon.
    I am from Barcelona, Spain. Here there is a scale replica of Ictineo at Diagonal Street.

    Kooklik a choo choo! & then an IJN I-400? thats going to be almost triple the amount of paper than the type VII used:mrgreen:

    Hi all here is a quick idea of the size a type VII next to a I-400. Yes it is a canoe but it is the correct length for the I400, just 200mm wider however.
    Both to the same scale!
    The IJN I400 was a big sub.

    So there is no digital delivery available for the u boat model? I was hoping it would be available for download in pdf or similar format.

    I thought about digital delivery. But I still no idea about this. I'll learn more about online business. My wife asked me half of income of each copy for handling them to the post office. :p

    Hello Kooklik,

    I noticed a few possible typographical errors you may wish to correct on future revisions:
    Page D – reads “90 grms + 1 mm Cardboard” – should it be “70 grms + 1 mm Cardboard”?
    Ans: 70grns is correct. No 90 grms paper used for this kit.
    Page G – reads “70 grms” - should it be “70 grms + 1 mm Cardboard”?
    Ans: Yes, it should be 70grms+1mm cardboard
    Page W – the lower edge of piece 40 was lost when I printed this page on letter size (8-1/2 x 11) paper. I simply inverted the image and printed it again but you might want to move the entire lower left block on this page up a couple mm.
    Page X - reads “90 grms + 1 mm Cardboard” – should it be “70 grms + 1 mm Cardboard”?
    Ans: I tested printing it was OK when printed in A4 or letter sized of paper. Anyway it was too closed to the page frame. I'll shift it up for afew millimeters.

    The file is too big to send via digital delivery. Sorry for convenience.
