Very nice. I consider myself spurred on to greater things!!
How do the hydroplanes respond, and how about the turning circle?

Why does this site loose my reply`s ?????? <*< <:( <*< <:( <*< <:( <*< <*< <:( <*< <*< <*< <*<


turning circle is very good at slow speeds opens out a bit the faster you go as do all sub and boats


dive planes work well unless you go to far with the travel


did reply with a more indepth response but for some reason the server lost the post.

Looks REALLY good!

Certainly looks the business and impresses the onlookers.

Nice lights (eyes!) too.

You saw what I did their unbuiltnautilus  {-) {-) {-)  found that over travel on the dive planes just stalls the sub so actioned the over travel by reducing the throw to 30% seems to keep the boat honest while diving


Thanks David like all subs great crowd pullers liked the comments of there being a crocodile in the lake, the eyes are 10mm led`s that also throw defused light down into the bridge control room, the club I am in is having a night sail on Saturday so more photos will be forth coming then.

Go for it was probably a very nice kit when the original buyer bought it, I got it after he had painted it and fixed the rear bulk head in the wrong position was a lot of work and a fair bit of time to get her where she is now, I would not buy the lighting system Engel sell for the kit so much cheaper to buy the parts and make them up your self, I still have to make corrections to some of the sub, the speed indicator screw is in the wrong place which means removing the old filling the hole in the hull then re-cutting a new hole further forward and to the correct dimensions.
