    This is the progress so far. The basic hull shape is done but there may have to be some revisions when I get hold of the more accurate set of plans that are being sent to me. Stand by for change!

    Do you have any more photographs of the brakes? Specifically, where they were located and how many there were. The photograph that you posted shows them further towards the rear than the proile sketch that I have. They also appear to be bigger. I read that there were ten in total so I'm assuming that they were equally spaced; five on each side; none on top and noe below? Also a photograph of the orward escape hatch would be good.

    That is a scary thought, dive brakes being needed on our subs! This thing must be a rocket!
    Like your other builds, I look forward to learning from you.

    Busted. I'm sure that the original Russian plans were lifted by the CIA, and the rest is history. Anyway, its a nice size and it just looks GREAT! Oh, and it had dive brakes for god's sake; actual dive brakes.
