    Gents, the development of a 1/96 VICTOR III has started.
    Streaming the WWW for pictures and information about the sub for two weeks, got what I required so first step is has been taken.

    Going to finish the AKULA first before I start crafting the VICTOR III.

    In between I will process what I got on information.




    Ok deal....suggest you jump in when I start laying up those hulls.

    Rudders and planes are mine, the root of them will be part of the tail piece.
    If you need pictures of the props or other parts just jell, I gathered a few now.

    Grtz,
    Bart

    If you offer to make the propeller still stands I will start with the stern first, make the tooling’s, cast it and sent it over to you?

    Excellent. Send it over when you can, Bart.

    I took the leap of setting up a web page and selling my stuff. Admittedly my kits are not as detailed as yours and David's however, I have been getting orders and the feedback has been positive.

    You will have success, in Terms of interest,. You will just need to find the right "operating tempo" that works for you.

    My operating tempo depends on the situ and on the person who you asked the question too.......the answer of "she who must be obeyed" will quite differ from mine.

    I have not been sitting on my butt all the time (actually I did but I was VICTOR III related) ....the designing faze is over.

    In addition to the above I made the decision (finally) to start up my own side business.

    After the AKULA was finished people approached me asking to make replicas of the sub for them. I wanted to but I did not design the mouldings with making replicas in mind, the scribing lines for instance were not integrated in them.
    Another thing was the fact that people would pay money for it and I did not want to upset the general administration of taxes in Belgium.

    During the development of the VICTOR III I decided that by starting a side business I would not have to say no anymore. I can sell the VICTOR III hull’s and keep my night rest and the general administration of taxes as a friend.

    Night rest I had very little of lately as I have made my own website in html code. Yes I’m cheap, so I wrote it myself without any knowledge of html, wont recommend it, but here you can find the result.

    http://scale-submarine.com/index.html

    Hope to post some progress here by the end of the month.

    Grtz,
    Bart

    If you guys wish, when you get the masters made for the bow planes (non functioning), make a couple of castings and I can make the working bow planes (articulating flaps) and return them to Dave as the "functioning masters" as a contribution to this project. Note: I can make the trailing edge work to a 50 to150 percentage of the angle of the main plane. I would suggest starting with 1 to 1. It is my understanding that a plane/rudder can go at up to 37 degrees of attack before it looses effectiveness. So with 1 to 1 the main bow plane can go to a 37 deg plane and the flap will go to 37 deg to the main plane or 74 deg to the longitudinal plane of the boat. I have found that this significantly increases the effectiveness of small rudders or planes.
