Default RE: Trumpeter Kilo Submarine

Thanks. BTW I had her opened up last night, I tried the motor and the pump with battery. MAN! This is a noisy sub! The vibrations caused by shaft through the hull doubles with the pump's fan moving in its own case. I could buy some capacitors but I don't want to buy a new soldering iron just for that. Plans are to retrieve motors that already have capacitors soldered onto them (e.g. on RC cars) and install them on my model.

OK, I need some more help on the hull's hold down mechanism. Due the plastic's flex, I have trouble making the hull halves hold together. Petn7, could you describe to me how your Alfa's hull halves are held down? Others, if you have experienced the same problem, could you maybe tell me how you overcame this probelm?
