Nice drawing !!!

But .... in my eyes the screw is a little bit small also i miss the retral hydroplanes !!!

Is it based on a real sub ??? Or pure fictional !!!

No, the design is pure fiction but i took some other submarine drawings for orientation concerning the sizes and proportions etc. No hydroplanes on board, as far as I know there were not too many designs which actually had hydroplanes on board.

May be we have here a misunderstanding ... i meant the "Tiefenruder" ... my translation program said "hydroplanes" . You understand ?????

I think Parador means the diving planes, like these: (Hydroplanes are a correct English language term for them as well.)

Thanks Brock ... yes that's what i meant !!!

also, I'll go out on a limb and say "retral" was supposed to be "rear" or "stern"

"Tiefenruder", now I understand ;-) How embarrassing, I forgot those....

And here is another one. A fictional design of a small coastal submarine, loosely based on the german Typ-II.

I love both drawings !!! Do you take drawing orders ??? :D

Yes, would be a pleasure. But it could take some time, depends on the complexity.

For those who do not know, this is my Dolphin class. Six units under construction. Thanks Daidalos!

Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you'll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.
