      Yeah that's the drawing I referred to......thanks Gantu.....fwd capstan is missing.

      And to prove I'm right about the aft capstan.....see arrow on below picture.....raised capstan......ropes running in front of it......end of ropes on PS hull she is moored SB.

      Now I will return and submerse myself in the VICTOR III again.

      Grtz,
      Bart

        This is the forward hatch.. with raised bollards set at an angle - wider spacing at forward and narrower spacing aft.

          Interesting......I wonder wy they replaced the capstan by a hatch....just kidding.......Can’t argue against that pic Scott….seems you have more pictures of the thing then I have.

          I lick my wounds and crawl back in my cave.

          I guess the picture is dated before the period photobucket decided to let people pay for 3rd party hosting.
          I see alot of these nowadays

            The plug is in the jig and I am puzzling over exactly where all those hatches and holes go. Progress so far:

              Nice. This slippery eel will fly! Good looking jig and sound methodology, pal.

              Have not forgotten your 1/96 ZULU SD. I'm in catch-up mode.

                Thanks Mate. No speed required on the SD. Have some fun with your SWM builds instead - I think that I'm going to be working on this Beluga for a LONG time.

                    That is slick! The sub and the stand! Tell me more about the stand!
                    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                        Its plywood Tom. I took the dividing head off my mill and bolted it to one of the uprights. The plug is mounted on 1/8 SS rod that is clamped into the diviving head's jaws. Set the angle to "0 Deg" and everything else is easy. I'm planning to run a scale along the bottom edge to make karking off easier. At the moment I'm taking the marks off the plan and just projecting them up to the plug using a right angle set square.

                              Hello Scott! Your plug looks great! Your building bench looks very nice too. You do not happen to have a picture of an earlier stage of your plug build? With experience from your earlier builds they are very interesting to see. WBR Fredrik

                                Hi Fredrik. Unfortunayely no, I didn't take any earlier photographs. I have to stop and remind myself to do that - constantly. How did your etching go?
