For my second drawing, the Oyashio (SS-511). Took me a while as I am not really familiarized with how things are done, but here it is! I consider it done, however, I'm fully open to new proposals on how to perfect the drawing! :D

After WW2, Japan was demilitarized, prohibited from having a navy to defend its territorial waters. However, after the Treaty of San Francisco, Japan established the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force. Shortly after this, Japan (specifically Kawasaki Heavy Industries) domestically built the Oyashio (SS-511) at Kawasaki Shipyard as a means of restarting domestic development of submarines. Commissioned on the 30th of June 1960 and decommissioned on the 30th of September 1976, the Oyashio had a long 16 year career before eventually being scrapped in March 1977.

A great effort, and of a boat that has been missing from SB for long. Shading is not my style and could use some definite reworking in, for example, the extreme bow, where the part atop the waterline is highlighted but below the waterline is shaded. If it was me doing this following the 45° rule, probably the vertical bow wouldn't be highlighted or shaded.
Either way great job and hope to see more work from you.

What is the 45° rule? And beside the extreme bow area, what else do you recommend I fix shading wise?

Nice work.
Basically, the "45 degree rule" means that the shading of the hull alters, depending wether the surface in question is - relative to the viewer - at an angle above or below 45 degree.
(mind that the this 45deg. border would vary along the length of the hull, especially in places like bow and stern)
