    It looks pretty close to me but I haven't received my kit yet. It looks damn close to the images Lindberg has online. Except for the forward planes and the missing upper rudder.

    Yes, that is from my website Operation Rising Sun about our I-52 salvage project... I-53 conning tower, bow, and hull shape is wrong.. It takes work, but you can turn it into a reasonable copy of a C-3... I used buttons from WalMart in two sizes to make my hatches, cut hinges off and used the hatch wheel..

        I'm not afraid of a lot of work. :wink:

        I have seen your work, I too would one day like to build a "Jules Verne's" (as I see it in my minds eye) NAUTILUS.

          • Nice! I see that you have the same problem as I did with the wrong date and time displayed on your video. How did you interimpose words on your video? Nice bit of manuevering at the end of the video.

            • I use a video editing software "Ulead Video Studio". Had it for years and is easy to use.

              When I get time I will try and work out how to change the time and date stamp.

              The boat handles and responds very well. It makes me look better than I am.

              • On many of the 808 keyfob cams you can switch the time and date off altogether. I bet you could do that too on this camera with a firmware update- I wonder if the manufacturer supply one?

                • Chris,

                  I don't remember seeing how you dealt with the kit's incorrect keel. What did you do? Takes steps? Or leave it as you found it?

                  • OK. I see it now. You left it as is.





                    Still looks good!

                              When are you going to install some of Dave's torps so you can sink those targets? See you at the next Sub
