Default RE: Trumpeter Kilo Submarine

The battery pack is made from styrene plastic, I think while cutting the parts I might have left some very small curved edges, the CA glue didn't seem to have sealed the openings enough so I covered the small corners with some epoxy instead (CA dries WAY faster than epoxy, I guess I was in a hurry when I made it) I sealed the cover with sealing tape and this method seemed to work well. One problem with small subs is that the batteries will take up a lot of weight, either the front will be heavy or the back will sink, if you add a little extra weight in the back, the whole sub might be going down! Takes a lot of patience but with the fun that I had so far with this little sub, I don't think I will quit!
