Thanks for the positive comments, they are much appreciated. I have really enjoyed myself on this build so far!
As most of the time it will be inside the crew will be as seen, however when I take it to the Lake it will have a different set.
But these will also be set differently from the 'Norm' as it's not my nature to follow convention!

All electrics installed & working, not without a few hitches but got there in the end.
Finalised the crew positions, all waterproofing sorted.
I was hoping to get it in the water this summer, unfortunately our local parks department chose this year to clean out the boating pond.
Apparently it is 25yrs since it was last emptied.


As there is no date for re-filling I am starting on a R/C build of a 1/72 Gato Class submarine.
Hopefully I will have it completed for next summer and can take them both together.

Yes Sir!

I have Always liked the Look of this Boat.
As long as I'm Not on the receiving end of its many Weapon's Systems...

As to Your Boat in particular all I can say is:

WOW!!!

Thank You for sharing your Build Log!

Would Love to build an RC version of this boat some time.
Bookmarked for Future Reference!

Happy Booting!

Ojay can you post what kind of electronics you have in this so others can maybe follow your example. Like battery, motor types and how many.

Having finished the Boote, I have decided to go under for a change.
I have started a R/C conversion of a Revell 1/72 scale Gato Class Submarine.
Originally going to be a surface runner, have now decided to build as a dynamic diver.

Are you planning to start a new Build Thread for your Gato?

I'd like to watch your Build...
I have a Revell 1/72 Gato in my Stash, with plenty of PE to go with it...
My initial thoughts were for a Static Diver, but have Numerous Builds ahead of it in my Dry Dock...

Hi Gus,
Started a new thread in the Subs section.
My pocket money and lack of knowledge won't stretch to a static diver, so chickened out with a dynamic instead.
