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


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

    Thank you guys. For steam sub details. Steam power can do many magnificent objects. That's a reason why I do steam locomotive for next project :D

    I have also had my CD. Now I am in other paper projects but I will soon (in a year?) begin the U-Boot build.
    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.
    Thank's.

    Nah Relax I only printed it out on A1, thats about 1/25th scale

    Which works out to be about the same size as this fellows model

    1:25 scale Type VIIc/41 model - Topic Powered by eve community

    whcih is just shorter than my Yamato...which will never get finished...

    Oh why do we collect so much and build so little?

    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.

    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.
