If i was honest (which i usually am) if your struggling to afford the Robbe kit @ £163 Then its unlikely you will get what you want.

However if you want to get into subs cheaply MMB is now producing a Submarine kit for £90, which is a good price for whats offered (dynamic diver not a static) and being new to subs a good place to learn how model subs work!

The U47 is a little more than 163 everywhere I have seen it.... almost double that in most places.  If you have seen one advertised at that pric then please PM me where it is lol

He said he couldn't afford the Robbe u47 (kit) so its unlikely he would be able to afford a RTR one! (I am speculating here however, but if you say the kit is to expensive the only assumption is that its out of his budget)

The sea wolf which is priced at 163 is far cheaper then a U47 which is why i responded with my suggestion for MMB sub kit as an alternative option.

My Robbe U-47 was 340 so i don't think the price sounds right, not unless it's damaged or something missing.
