Skydiver 1, or maybe 4. A bit of a challenge.
« on: April 04, 2019, 07:11:22 PM »

Just got this beast, a 60" Studio 2 Models Skydiver submarine, from Gerry Andersons' live action TV series UFO. I have always wanted one of these, now I have one.
It's not going to be a quick project ( which projects of mine ever are!? ), I am going with thinking and planning, maybe a bit of cosmetic work, only for the time being. Other projects must take precedent before I can really get stuck in to this.
So, current plans; Air pumps, twin shrouded jet drives, with reverse through the hull side grills, shifting ballast/battery for altering trim, 3D steerable nozzles. So lts to think about, no rush just yet, will just keep looking at it with loving eyes for now :embarrassed:
