Engel type IX D2 - modifications


Hi all!
I built about 10 years ago type IX D2 from Engel. From the beginning we made functional periscopes, navigation lights, functional anchor, walrus reflector and torpedo launch system with liquefied air. Since then, I have made some improvements to it, in the sense that I have mounted the Modellbau Wikinger deck and tower, the FU-MO antenna, the ammunition hatches and various details made by Boris Nakropin.
At first, I made the hatch opening system as in type VII (wrong thing, but easier to build)
The other day I decided to change the torpedo hatches and their opening system, although the bow of the Engel model is not as sharp as the original model, but I think it turned out well.
Today I finished painting.
I am waiting for a 25kg servo to operate the hatches and I will continue to post the construction result.

The hatches open simultaneously, using two Bowden cables.
