I'm motoring along on my 1/350 AFV I-58, and have a question.

Did she carry a cage antenna running from the pole mast on the Stbd rear to somewhere on the bridge? Or did she carry some other form of rigging.
I've not been able to find the answer in any of my references thus far.

Also, was the rigging taking down when at sea? Or was she able to dive and run under the surface with it in place?

Here's a couple of pics of her so far with some weathering done and two of her Kaiten's in place and a wood deck attached, however, the part for the conning tower fell apart when I tried to peel off the backing, so I had to paint it.

Tall masts were foded down for submerged configurations. The cage aerials were undoubtably stored.

Offhand,isn't I-174 a Kaidai Type V1 class, like I-168?

I-168 through I-73 were Kaidai 6A boats, while I-174 and I-175 were Kaidai 6B. The latter two were 30 centimeters longer, 25 tons heavier, and had a 50-caliber deck gun instead of the 65-caliber mount of the KD6A boats.

Many years ago I converted the 1/700 scale I-58 to the I-53 using a drawing of the latter found in the book "Japanese naval vessels at the end of the war" In national geographic Oct 1999 there are pictures and a drawing of the wreck of the I-52.

"Submarines of the Imperial Japanese navy has pictures of the I-29 painted light grey with black decks in France. I guess for the trip home. There are also pictures of the I-8 in France which looks like it was painted dark grey overall. If you look up the I-30 on wiki you can find German film clips of the sub heavily weathered and later painted light grey with black decks

I am thinking one day of converting the 1/700 scale I-6 to the I-5
As for the I-174 and 175 I wonder if they differed any way externally from the other I-168 class subs
