    I have nothing on the Daphene, so I can't help you out there. You've done a Google search, I take it?

    I assume that you mean the 1964 ones!
    My copy of "Submarines of the World" by Captain E L Schwab has (as usual!) no drawings.
    But some nice photos and also some information on substantial exports:

    Pakistan (Called Hangor class)(x4)
    Spain (Called Delfin in Spain)(x4)
    Portugal (Called Albacora)(x3)
    South Africa (Maria van Riebeck class) (x3)

    This may give you some useful leads.

    There is also a thriving French model submariners forum (It's name escapes me but search this Forum or Google it. You could post an enquiry. Suggest use Google Translate in French and don't mention the fact that the French lost 2 Daphnes in quick succession!)

    PS I have just added the French, Dutch and German Forums into "Useful Links".

    Hi
    I think i need to tell you why i am looking for the hull lines for a daphne submarine. The south African navy took delivery of three Daphne class submarines between 1970 and 1972 which i am sure you are well aquainted . One is now  with the SA museum the S99 SAS Assegaai formally the SAS Johana Van Der Merwe, this boat is 100% complete and open to the public.
    I personally know nothing about submarines all i know is being EX RAF is we used to hunt them and try and sink them :-)
    As a model maker i want to make an accurate mold of a Daphne so the SA museum can cast models to sell in aid of the SAS Assegaai thats it in a nut shell

    Ah I see that is different. We immediately thought of you making and sailing a r/c submarine!

    So presumably you want to make and sell cast resin models. What sort of size?

    I think this is moving into quite specialist territory. There must be firms that produce cast warship replicas. (Scanning and 3D printing maybe??) This is getting out of my area of knowledge. I wonder if the RN submarine museum can give you some pointers?

    Presumably the museum are already selling plastic kits? (Which must be available for at least one of the Daphne variants?)

    Sorry that this answer consists mainly of questions!

    David
