K Class submarines
« on: July 09, 2009, 08:58:51 AM »

Does anyone know of any drawings for the early K class steam submarines, in particular I am looking for details of the conning and funnel area?

There is a "basic" 1:192 drawing in The K Boats by Don Everitt

There is also quite a good article in the Warship periodical No 8 from quite a while back with several useful pictures.

Thanks for everyones help, I have got the plans now and the hull.  I have scanned and blown up the drawings to 1/72. The model is only goinfg to be a suface runner for two reasons;

1. Their diving reputation was awful, they seemed to spend a lot of time nose down in the sea bed.  <:(

2. I want to see if I can squezze a small foggy inside to get some authentic looking smoke out.

Like the picture Andrew, I am planning on building K3, what scale is your model?
