        Amazing! The only thing that will make an improvement is when you paint it!
        If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

              Continued drawing.....clutch assembly. The problem is that photos depicting the interior of the Type XXIII are rare and often not quite clear. Anyway, that's what I found out. Clutch was driven by a manually operated worm gear with a detachable crank. This is my basic approximation. Details to be added....

                Designed the belt drive clutch fpr my Type XXIII based on a similar one from the Type XXI (had the drawing of latter). The main clutch and the belt drive clutch were coupled, so that one could only engage the belt drive wehn the main clutch was open. A lot of geusswork on my side involved, as there are now drawings or photos of this section. But I like it....getting busy in there.

                    That wash really is giving that engine some depth. Keep on sir! This is such a great subject and add your detail it looks marvelous. I do hope you make this to sell or allow us to print it ourself.
                    Peace,
                    Tom

                            Finished the engine section, currently working on the control room. Radio room is done, Anschütz compass is in, rudder control is done. I'm currently working on the Snorchel and induction masts. Tedious but very interesting.

                                DrSchmidt,

                                Is there a chance you could elaborate on the 3D printer you decided on? Your parts are really very detailed and look great! Thanks for the information on the printer.
