Nice to see you're still active Satlite. Was looking for your old post over at Nautilus Drydocks forum last month. Have you finished your Type VII?

RE: The Flying Fish

Wouldn't a cooling coil like those on FE boats been better? Just 2 small holes for the water intake and exit.
You may not get sufficient cooling as the heat has to travel a long way by conduction...

RE: need trimming material advice ??

Since Revell's 1/72 Type VII was to expensive for me and now currently out of production I've also thought about converting their 1/125 Type VII U99 to RC too. I'll be watching this thread closely....

RE: Typhoon static diving mini submarine

As a nub this thread is ruining my appetite for knowledge about RC submarines.[:o]

We have saying here, "stop lifting one's own bench" (egotistically trumpeting one's achievements).

RE: Typhoon static diving mini submarine

The lighter is only used as a gas reservoir. The gas used in the Japanese Typhoon was Freon 134 . I'm sure there are more environmentally friendly alternatives nowadays. The lighter used is a...

RE: Typhoon static diving mini submarine

A boat this small theoretically could dive using RCABS but I don't see any bladders on the video so I think you're using a small water pump with a vented tank.

Have you seen this Japanese...

RE: How to imitate the type VII wooden deck?

The simplest way to do it is to just use the kit's deck. Just drill some small hole to vent the air out. For scale effect just paint the deck recesses black

RE: Revell 1/72 VIIC: rear depth planes, my solution

That is correct. You solder the dive plane rods to a thin brass sheet (one that can fit in the keel space) that will serve as your control arm. You need to install this before closing the hull halves...

RE: The Javilin Fightersub !

This Japanese modeler converted a 1/72 Space Shuttle to a sub. Incorporates a small pump jet (No thrust vectoring ) and uses just an elevon mixer.

RE: Moebius Seaview Gas and RCABS WTC side by side

Nuke that's a great tip.
My alternative would be to give those manta rays an aerofoil shape so that they develop lift thus countering the bow down attitude.

Speaking of the sub hatch, I was...

RE: Moebius Seaview Gas and RCABS WTC side by side

One way of visualizing fluid flow would be to attach short strands of thin thread around the surface of the sub. This way could drive her pass the camera in the pool. Another way would be to use food...

RE: Moebius Seaview Gas and RCABS WTC side by side

Why not bash them together? Combine BD's BTP and RCABS-R with Merriman's snort into a hybrid system. You could also try a different ballast system altogether like a piston tank or water pump.

RE: Big Dave Seaview Unit

Are those orange braces included in the kit or are they your own addition.

RE: Seaview Concept II

I wonder if this model would also have the same tendency to go bow down sharply at high speed or have the same turning problems as the original Seaview?

RE: wtc end caps

Let me guess:eek:
1. It shatters readily.
2. It's cheap.
3. It comes in different wonderful colors.
4. It's light.

I myself prefer a good old iron pipe.
