Hi All,

Here are a few photographs and the drawings of the paper model Deutschland that was mentioned before. The fascinating voyage of the Deutschland to America before our entry into The Great War is too long to relay here, so just Google, ďSubmarine Deutschland to AmericaĒ to find the many sites that describe the event.

The model was tricky to build, but it went together on the first try. From my experience, the same cannot be said for the Schreiber U9. Iíve tried three times to build it and I canít properly fit the deck to the hull. Now itís become a mental block that I may never overcome. So, now Iíve got another one of those in my head.

Score and fold,

Thumb Dog

I'm an airplane guy so I haven't paid attention to them and I can use a gift for someone.

I don't recall ever seeing one around but than again that's not within my area of interest.

Grazie.
Hi Grazie,

I'm an airplane guy too. But, if you were to do some reading about the WWII subs, you might get hooked on them as well.

Three books:

Bowfin is about a particular one, now a museum in Hawaii.

Wahoo The patrols of America's Most Famous WWII Submarine

Clear The Bridge The War Patrols of the U.S.S. Tang
Last two are written by the same Commander, Richard O'Kane

That U-35 doesn't look too complicated.
Looks like a fine place to start.
I hope you do a build thread.

I built Kooklik's WW2 U-Boat, which is quite a challenge.
This would have been a much smarter place to start! lol

This is an interesting thread.

I was glad to see your completed Deutschlandmodel, Thumb Dog. A few years ago, Tom Greensfelder posted images of a kit of that submarine with some information about its voyage in 1916 to my home town of Baltimore, Maryland (1916 German Submarine). I provided some links to historical information and images (see below). Tom provided additional info (http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/402299-post14.html).

This was my post (I have deleted one of the links that no longer works):

The Maryland Historical Society (Maryland Historical Society | Museum and Library | Baltimore, MD) holds images of Deutschland's visit. Here are the finding aids of the Society related to Deutschland: Search | Maryland Historical Society

And here are other images and accounts of the ship:

https://www.firstworldwar.com/source/deutschland1.htm (First World War.com - Primary Documents - German Submarine Deutschland's Atlantic Crossing, 9 July 1916)

Hi All,

And hi, Don. Thanks for your kind words and the further information. The story of the Deutschland's crossing and return is as much an American saga as it is German. With the numbers of German-American citizens nearing ten percent, the largest imigrant group in the country at the time, the Deutschland and her crew were quite the stars in Baltimore and around the country. The visit by the cargo submarine did much to boost morale among the German-Americans who had been having a hard time of it here in this country even before our entry into the war in April, 1917. It was said that by the time Captain Paul Koenig left for Germany, his coat no longer had any buttons left, as the public had demanded them as souvenirs of the daring voyage.

The Deutschland's crossing is one of the great sea-tales of the era, and it's peaceful nature in the middle of the Great War makes it even more so.
I'm attaching an image of the house flag of the Deutsche-Ozean-Reederei, or the German Ocean Shipping Company, the private consortium that sponsored the great adventure.

Score and fold,

Thumb Dog

Hi All,

Just a quick note to say that the images of the Deutschland's drawings that I posted earlier came form the collection of friend and fellow member Tom Greensfelder. They really are a fine example of German paper modeling of the time with good color and good fit. Sorry for the oversight and thanks again, Tom.

Score and Fold,

Thumb Dog
