    Hi All
    This is my first design card model. After serveral weeks for finding details , blueprints and pictures from internet. I spent 2 months to draw it up by Rhino. I still lack of many details. Hope someones or U-Boat fans give me comments or suggestions for me to put the correct design to it.

    Thanks to NOBI. I got a knowhow to add stripers between plates from him. But the keel seemed too big. Plates couldn't fit to the positions I want. View attachment 7056

    Rhino is cool. Official.....

    Anyone have any doubts, look back over this thread!

    What next, a corvette, or a FW200, or a Liberty ship?

    Excellent project,

    Tim
