    From what I read on another forum, the larger ones were custom builds by the owner.

    Robbe does make a 1/40 though.

    Did the guy ever get his sub back. You can see me over by PreDread's bismark taking to him in the video I know they searched the lake for about 1 1/2 looking for the sub.

    RE: Schnell boat at St Louis boat show

    I went to Union Station where this year's St Louis regetta was held. And i was looking at the lake there. I noticed you can see the bottom becuase of the ice and snow we had. Just wondering if the guy that lost the submarine ever got it back or not. Anyone know?

    RE: Schnell boat at St Louis boat show

    The sub is still in the lake somewhere. We believe it to be in the area of/under that little pavilion area where the pay R/C boats are.
