Hello Rich,

The torpedo's are a nice addition, but only practical in swimmingpools.

Some links to the video's to show how it's working, done this a few years ago, enjoy.

Brilliant, I love that idea...so simple!

I wonder if I could persuade you to post this on the Association of Model Submariners forum, I know the guys would love to see your boat.
