If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

Not seen one. he does sell on a limited basis on ebay- http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/a1downundersubs/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686

They seem to work on the same principle as the Sheerline modules, with water pumping into a sealed tank, pressurizing the air above it.

They look nicely made in the pictures, but do show fairly long tanks with no baffles in. As this system maintains an exposed water surface, I'd be a bit concerned about stability.
