      Found some time to work on the Type II CAD model. Here's a view from the torpedo room through the control room (with radio room on the right) and through the galley to the door of the machine room.

        Worked some more on the control room of the Vesikko (Type II). Got the gyro compass, the machine telegraphs, the steering wheel for the rudder , the compass repeater and the periscope winch setup into place. I also put the periscope wells and the pressure bottles under the floor done....

          Found some time to work on the inner details of the control room of the Type II prototype Vesikko. The ventilation air manifold took some time. Folks back then really were artists in bending intricate peaces of tubing art...the box at the bottom are the alkaline cartridges for CO2 removal.

              I worked allot on the control room, so much, that I needed to take a break from it. So I decided to give the Diesel engine a try...and here's why I love the internet. Designing the Diesel just from photos is very, very hard and will always be inaccurate. So I went on the hunt for drawings. And guess what, the International Maritime Museum in Hamburg has the Construction Manual in their archives, an archive that was digitized and is freely available though the German Digital Library

              -> https://www.deutsche-digitale-biblio...st&hitNumber=1

              Had problems downloading the whole file, contacted them and they sent my the 406 pages book as pdf, I love it!

              So here we go..as the Diesel will be tiny in 1/72 scale, I have to make compromises with diameters and wall thicknesses here and there, but it starts to look like the original:

                More work on the drivetrain....

                Diesel engine, elastic coupling, transmission, clutch and then the electric motor. The cilyndrical uright thing in thze back is the oil cooler for the transmission.

                  I did allot of work on the diesel and then started to model the engine room, starting with the engin foundations. The engine bases were a welded steel structure that also served as main fuel oil tank. I also added the foundations for the two thrust bearings and right in next to them (bow side) the electric motor clutch and the rpm-meter. The blue structure in the port aft side houses the toilet.
