Default Lindberg's I-20 & I-53

Any interest here for the new Linderg releases that were announced last week in Chicago? Both should make for some very interesting RC conversions next year & I can imagine what options we'll see in the coming months as they get closer to release.

Photos below are courtesy of Pat Matthews; more detailed photos of what was on display can be seen here: [link=http://http://nautilusmodels.com/IJN-SUBS.htm]Lindberg IJN Subs[/link].

It appears that now my Gato will have something to hunt!

I cannot believe that Lindberg is releasing such kits as these! They're massive and should prove quite popular for static and RC conversion alike. WOW...[sm=tongue_smile.gif][sm=tongue_smile.gif][sm=wink_smile.gif]

Again, what a release from the very not-so-humble-anymore Lindberg.

We have a few guys at SP already interested in motorizing the kaiten using a magnetic reed switch to allow both release & motor start. They'd be free running like a torpedo but one can think of the possibilities.

Perhaps a I-400 or Type IX if anyone is listening....

I can't tell from the pictures so maybe someone who has seen them both can answer this. They both have the same length but it looks like the i53 is taller. Is that the case?

I believe the I53 was pulled from the market due to the fact it was a total Cluster frak...


I hope that the I20 will be released and look correct.. I will buy that one!

This is one of my favorite builds using the Lindbergh model: https://forum.rc-sub.com/forum/build...i-i-25-in-1-72
