I would like to find the external arraingement plans in 1/72 scale for an Akula II.
I have checked with Deep Sea Designs.He only has them in 1/96.Does anybody else have them?

There are some online drawings at this address. They can be viewed with AutoCAD or other CAD applications which you can download and use free for a month. I used IntelliCAD to view the drawings, as suggested on the site. I don't know how accurate or otherwise these plans are, but they seemed pretty detailed. The scale of the dimensions on the drawings is 1:1, so you'll have to do your own scaling. Otherwise it shouldn't be that difficult to rescale the Deep Sea Designs drawing anyway.

There is also another Akula plan that I found somewhere on the web as a JPG, but I can't find the address right now. It was a site with plans of 40 or so subs of all ages. I'm sure someone will come along with it soon.

Cheers,

Tim

I'm sure Greg Sharpe would sell you a set of 1/96 and give you the ok to enlarge them if you ask. Take them to the local BizMart and increase them by the appropriate %. ???

Tim,
That is an interesting line drawing of the Gepard.
I see what must be some kind of sensor just ahead of the sail,and at the 4:00 and 8:00 position in the front 1/3 of the sub.Do you have any idea what it is?
Also,just ahead of the sensor(?),is a large section on either side of the hull for some purpose.What is that,do you suppose?
