My pleasure.   It wasn't easy and I'm sure there are some omission's.  I've removed irrelevant comments.  Feel free to add corrections if the thread doesn't flow right.

These need to be ballasted down to decks awash to dive realistically as a dynamic diver.

Any higher and they need stupid amounts of speed to get under. Unfortunately the waterline shown on the  box art is highly misleading.

More ballast added yesterday, in a fresh water tank. followed by a trip to the local salt water lake. The model nearly submerged on the one working motor. It should have more than ample power with both motors working. We needed to be sure the model was waterproof before adding any more ballast, now those pesky leaks seen to be sorted we can get a bit more ballast on board.
