Default Where to get Submarine conversion kits

Hi, i am thinking of doing a plastic submarine conversion and I don't know where to find any conversion kits or plastic sealed tubes for the electronics.

Does anybody know where I can get these for cheap? Preferably in New Zealand?



Thanks

These would be starting points for your internals and knowledge. You can build your own or buy pre-designed WTC. If I may offer a couple of suggestions, one, pick an easy sub like the Revell Skipjack or Bronco Type XXIII
Both of those have plenty of room to work in. Second suggestion, do not go crazy with all the fluff like torpedoes, working scopes, and such. Work to get the sub running and working well. Then you can work on another sub and add the fluff since you now have the experience. A statement I was told was crawl, walk, run.

Ah, thanks!
True about the crawl,walk,run thing.For my first sub, I will just make it slightly buoyant (with ballast) So all it needs to dive are the forward (or rear) diving planes, no complicated ballast tanks here! ,All I want it to do is go up/down ,left/right and forward/backward. Simple
