http://roguesubworks.com check out the download section, there is a paper on building your own WTC. That being said, I would personally recommend buying a pre-made unit. There are a lot of frustrations in building a sub, do not multiply that factor by trying to go a less expensive route. Get in touch with someone that lives near you with sub experience to help mentor you. At the very least, post your build to get help.

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

Hello, its a way off yet, but if you want to see some of the UK Experts and their models, please feel free to come along to the Norwich Submarine weekend at the end of July, you will be able to look very close at the way its done.
