Complete Robbe U47 Kits pop up from time to time on eBay USA. Not so much the Robbe U2540, that I had one HECK of a Time finding. Managed to get both on eBay after a VERY Long Search. You might also check eBay Germany. As I recall, I got my U2540 Kit from there. Problem is, Most Sellers in Germany will NOT ship overseas due to the Sheer Size and Weight of the Kit and Shipping Costs. Good Luck with Your Search!

So You Bought It? If so, Congrats! Yep, Now that Robbe decided to Discontinue ALL of Their Sub Kits, that price is about right. I waited too late to get mine. NOW, I'm having a HECK of a Time trying to find Robbe's Discontinued Linde Forklift Kit.

Hmmm. Well another Robbe U47 just got sold on eBay Germany the other day. Like I said earlier, You see the Robbe U47 for Sale on eBay from time to time, not to mention the German and English Sites. But, because the Models have been discontinued. be prepared to pay "Collectors Prices".

As for Your WTC problems, Who made yours? I'm relatively New to the RC Sub World myself but here are some places that You may be able to get help:

www.caswellplating.com (Caswell Models)
www.sub-driver.com
www.rc-sub.com

On Facebook

Dive-In to Model Submarines (English Based Group with Lots of Information and Advice)
Association of Model Submariners
The SubCommittee

And Thanks for reminding me. I've got to pick up a WTC for My Revell VII.

Again, good luck in your quest and please keep us Posted!
