Various submarine plans to share
I have been talking with Justin and when we get the chance I am going to send these to him to host here for all to use. Mean while I'm putting the list up for you to look at and if you need something from the list right away I can email them to you. I have noted when a drawing is just that, with no dimensions and I have tons of pictures for some of the plans listed.
The British drawings are basic. I'm not sure of how accurate they are.
The French drawings are actual shipyard drawings from their website before they took it down as are some of the German ones.
The other German plans come from the Dreadnaught project website. Be sure to check them out, they have various surface ship plans there as well.
The U.S. plans are actual shipyard drawings except where noted and are ones I have collected personally and have gotten from friends or various websites. These are not copy righted plans except for the dreadnaught project ones as far as I know. They can be shared as long as their stamp stays on it. This is from their website; All images in this section are protected by copyright, as the marks on them indicate. I freely grant the right to reproduce the images as-is, in electronic form. Print publication requires written permission. http://www.dreadnoughtproject.org/plans/
Happy new year to all!

No problem. Oh and my email address is,
for those interested in the plans.
French Ship Plan / Reference Photo Site Back Online
Herrmill posted this on rc groups and I thought I'd pass it on here for those that may be interested. Lots of old submarine plans and other types of surface boats. Better go and check them out before they disappear again. Use google or some other translator for your language of choice.
How can one download a plan?
Followed the translated instructions and got 2 fuzzy postage stamp size images.

John, that's odd. All I did was right click the link and "clicked save link as" and it worked like a champ. Don't try to open it first. I'm using Fire Fox by the way. If you use internet explorer then it would be "save target as". If you want I can down load and email you the plan you want, let me know.
Please send the image of the type IX-C plan.
Sure thing John. PM me your email address and I'll get it to you.
