    Hi there
    Just finshed mocking up screw making. Found many mistakes in design.
    1. First , there's no internal former inside the propeller hub (cone shape). Angular balance between blades is unbalance.
    2. No marks for positioning of housing supports.
    3. Forget propeller housing heading (cone shape in front of the housing)

    I was looking at this book online and they seem to have entire series about different types of ships. Do you think the book that YOU HAVE is worth the money for someone who does design? They have two books about aircraft carriers and I would like to buy them.

    Thank

    Alot of parts of the ship I can't find them in public websites. Book save me time to find them out. But drawing in book only is not enough , pictures/illus plastic models are all my materials. I need color painting scheme of U-Boats. Does any one know any website?

    A beautiful model kooklik... well done. Really enjoying this thread and looking forward to seeing the boat completed. I think the following site may be of use to you. It is dedicated to the plastic model Revell 1/72 Type VIIC U-Boat and has some very good research info on it:

    http://www.rocketcopy.biz/models/rokket/uboat/index.shtml

    Click on "Paint" link in the side menu for a pdf on u-boat colors.

    Also check in on "News & Research" link for info on the hull flood ports.
