Good evening from 'The Dockyard'.

Just a very short update this week.

I have started to make the couplers that connect the main motors to the propeller shafts.

Didn't make as much progress as i would of liked this week due to the fiddly nature of this work.

In the attached photo you can see the white blocks marked with arrows and another set with a brass rod between them. It was fitting these blocks that proved tricky, especially the ones with the brass rod lying between them. Many attempts required as the blocks kept falling down into the bilge and lots of turning the u-boat upside down to retrieve them!Confused Blink Crying.

I then started to make up the cylinder shapes to represent the couplers, in a similar way i made the basic shapes of the main motors.

Phil

Your updates are so interesting.

The detail is amazing and to think you are making everything from such small pieces.

You must have a steady hand and a good eye.

Another great update.Cool Cool

I`m calm again now I`ve had a fix of U230 LOL LOL LOL


I do have a question though.Blink

As an Ex scuba diver (trained to 46 metres), who has been disorientated under water, do submariners have the same issues. I could see around me when diving, but sometimes the mind can play tricks. That`s when we relied on our dive gauges. So I was wondering if submariners had the same problem or more so, as they can only see the inside of the sub?
