I suppose you could, the plan was to never having to open it up , but thats me it , seems  a good idea, the aft lower hull is removable to access  the charging and on of circuit,  once the battery is fitted it shouldn't need removal unless theres a problem, pete

Pete,

Hi redboat , this is the best l can do, looking at it again maybe I should have sited the wtc higher in the hull which would have allowed for more ballast below and increased its stability, regards pete

Perfectly OK. :-))

I see no provisions for controlling your bow planes. So I assume these will fixed. 

BTW, Can you post close up photos of the access panels for the stern plane control linkages.

This is a view of the lower stern access panel , this pic was taken early on the build , instead of rod for rudder and stern planes , I used short length bowden cable, with bellows the inner cables are also o ringed onto the inner cable , because im  using rcabs all seals need to be 100%
You can just make out the back stop for wtc, which has now been drilled to hold the wtc in place, there will also be simple on off and battery charge connection, using a waterproof fuse holder,  when get some time I will post pics of its test run, pete

Pete,
I am sorry to hear about the loss of your sub. This past summer, my XXIII also went missing. Still at the bottom of the lake. Sigh.
I hope your friend can find it and bring it back.
Peace,
Tom

Maybe when U-33 has his motorflote complete he can get george have a look for you - i believe the motorflote will submerge at full speed, and with george's flatulance problem, he'll race along the bottom quite quickly till the pusher bars make contact and then surface - when he does you know where the sub is - possibly  :}

Sorry to hear about the loss of your sub, and it is easy to be wise after the event, but I never put a sub in the water unless I have put a Pinger on board:

http://www.theassociationofmodelsubmariners.com/t26-pingers-and-hydrophoneso

I have to say that after this length of time the Pinger battery would be flat anyway(lasts about a month) and the model will be covered in silt and difficult for a diver to spot (particularly in poor viz)

My sympathy goes with you and sad to say you may have to write this one off.

Hi thanks for your comments I have been searching using  my dingy but as you  say its probably got a  good covering of silt, the water does drop in the winter,  we did lose three gnomes off  our mooring, please dont ask! , but i did find them in mud , I could always build another one.
