Hi Pawel,

... And that looks pretty good to me too!

Now, always with your permission (since you seem to be off the starting blocks!), can I suggest you three little more improvements that will make your forecastle even better?

E- There was a trapdoor, located on the chartroom partition. That's what I guess Italeri intended to reproduce on its S-100, not exactly knowing what its purpose was. I have added three pictures from the propaganda movie "Asse Zur See" that you can find on the internet for you. 1) The chartroom man speaks thru that trapdoor to the captain standing on the bridge. 2) The captain now aware of the situation turns around forward. 3) He delivers his orders to the wheelhouse guys.

F- The question of two handles being on the door. Plans and photos only show on handle. This matter was also discussed with Brian Balkwill somewhere in this thread, and he kindly forwarded a picture of that door from S130, which demonstrated again, having two handles was a pure fantasy from Italeri...

G- I won't discuss about the length of the wood decking. We already did! But if you give a look at the bottom right original drawing Pawel, you'll notice that it was a board put down flat, not actually following the chartroom curved roof.

Now... I just hope you aren't feeling like killing me. I can still be of some help, you know!

Oh God, now am I in trouble!

A Georgian having problems with metrics and a Pole with our Roman alphabet! I know at least one Pole in Rome who'd stand up his grave. Well, I'd maybe start thinking growing strawberries... or move to Mars!

Ok, keep cool Robert, take a long breath. So, let me put myself together... what were we talking about? O yeah, go it. Pawel:
E- concerned trapdoor... not wood decking
G- concerned wood decking.

And to answer your question Pawel, yes there's a drawing of the trapdoor. It's on the German plans. Yours, posted yesterday show the front of the open bridge, another one shows its back. I know at least two German propaganda/weekly news programs that show the trapdoor. Sorry, if I don't feel right now like viewing all the videos to spot it, you'll have to take my word.

And Bill, nope sir, I'll never go ask an American to spell words the English way. Don't forget, I worked for over 30 years for the In'l. Herald Tribune!

Good nite gentlemen!

Typ S-100

FuMB-28 Naxos





Pavel

Nice looking Naxos got a question about the hood.

How did you create this perspex hood ??

And about the lokation of Naxos and other radar information take a look around on the following Internet address

http://www.cdvandt.org/

There is a lot to find on German radio material and radar.

Gentlemen

Here is the first testrun of the Torpedo I:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nq22v4y_7X0

The torpedo is runs by a 7 mm DC engine a 10 m Propeller and a AAA battery. The torpedo lies well balanced in the water, but the speed is not satisfying. The variables we can change her are 1) using 2 AAA batteries, 2) using a bigger Propeller, 3) increase the angle on the propeller wings.

Well, I think the next torpedo version will include 2 AAA batteries, a bigger propeller and a stronger angle of the wings.

But I will be in Frankfurt for the next three week, thus it will take some time until Torpedo II will come to the movies in the theatre next to you.....................

Hello Bill,

I document all my construction, success and failures within the following German forum:

http://www.schiffsmodell.net/showthread.php?t=35871&highlight=boot+6ten+Schnellbootflotille

The description is in German, but most pictures tell the story, the components you need etc. anyway, I am just a personal note away

Another captain - Ole - provides his description in the same forum under this address:

http://www.schiffsmodell.net/showthread.php?t=31784

hope this helps, if I can be of assistance or help, just let me know

Thank you for the link, Bert. I found it so much time ago that I couldn't track it back!

Beautiful job on your "Torpedo Mark I," Christian. I can hardly wait to see the devastating Mark II in action.
And I agree with Bill; for having added so much electronics (re: motorizing the guns, deep charges, etc.), you'd create your own thread explaining step-by-step material you used and how you solved these challenges. That would surely attract more than one modeler wishing to RC any kind of torpedo boat.

Thanks Bert.

My first question is on the M42.



On the schnellboot like the S-145 or 150, how whas this gun :
With or without external shields like more recent boats ?

The slots where rectangular or circular ?

When the boat was in harbour, are the shields open or closed ?

Have you answers for me ?




Best regards

Jol

Hi Joel,
welcome to this S-100 group from Germany!
Try to find pics concerning S-145 and/or S-150; I will do too.
I believe, that the wider shields for the 3,7cm Flak M42 on S-204 and S-205 were rebuilt late 1944. For this AA-gun was also used on u-boats the folding mechanism was evident while diving to reduce the hydrodymanic resistance. and that wasn't important on s-boats!

Thanks for your reply and future pictures...

I think so too. I shall built my AA normally, in position of firing.
