I saw some thread here 2-3 weeks ago with a Uboat drawing pic but can't find it now - used search but no results with words "drawing" or "scheme"

So I'd appreciate if someone could give me link to that thread or straight to Uboat drawings on the net

There is a large scan of the Type VII-C schematic here (http://www.mikekemble.com/ww2/images/typeVIIC.jpg)

Thanks a lot VG

And there's one more thing I'd like to tell you - while I was searching for these drawings I've read some other threads and I really liked your style of talking about boats, battles etc. + I like the style of yout signature http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif cheers

Thanks U734 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It's good to share stuff. I've learnt a lot about SH3, U-boats, WW2, WW1, PC's and other stuff on these forums.

It's addictive!

If you're really serious about getting some U-boat plans/drawings/schematics, then you can sometimes find large-scale prints on eBay. I also just remembered this reply I made to someone asked about this in a post many months ago:

Does anybody know where I can find some nice scale plans / drawings / blue prints of the exterior dimensions of a Type VIIb U-Boat ? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

There is a book called "The Type VII U-boat (Anatomy of the Ship)" (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1591148863/qid=1123352730/sr=8-1/ref=pd_bbs_sbs_1/104-6083686-9482369?v=glance&s=books&n=507846) which you may find useful for your project.

Also, check out "Type VII U-Boats: Shipcraft" (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1861762380/qid=1123352730/sr=8-2/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl14/104-6083686-9482369?v=glance&s=books&n=507846) and "Type VII U-Boats" (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1557508283/qid=1123352730/sr=8-3/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i2_xgl14/104-6083686-9482369?v=glance&s=books&n=507846).

I have not read any of these books, but they sound like they would be very useful - check out the customer reviews. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
