Default Schnell boat at St Louis boat show

Does anyone know anything about the Schnell boot at the 2008 St Louis boat show, if it is a kit, I have never seen it, can anyone tell me how it was built, scratch build, or kit, thanks, Randy.

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

Robbe does make a 1/40 though.

The one at St Louis is 1/20 scale, all scratch built.

At time mark "2:41" of this video, you can see it running:

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.

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?

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.
