Forums are back!

Good day, everyone!


As you are probably aware, the forums are (finally!) back up and running.

It was a long and frustrating journey due to how the old forum database was structured, which resulted in an absolutely massive file that was exceptionally difficult to migrate to the new hosting provider. In the end, we got it figured out thanks to the relentless work of a friend who knows more about this than I will ever conceive.

Some things to note:

1.) New address! No more sub-driver.com! The forums are now permanently hosted at https://forum.rc-sub.com. Change you bookmarks! Tell everyone else to change them, too!
2.) Old bookmarks won't work! Due to the SSL settings on the old domain, your old bookmarks will get you an error message if you try to visit forum.sub-driver.com. I'm working on setting up a new security certificate for that site so that it will redirect properly, but until then, you get the error.
3) Help me by looking around for broken stuff. If there are wonky threads, let me know and I'll see what I can do about cleaning them up. That said, bear in mind that we'll do the best we can from our end, but we need to evaluate each issue in terms of importance and may have to de-select repairs if they end up too time-consuming. (that's what you get for using a free site! ;))

Thank for your patience, everyone! I really appreciate it.

BUILD ON!

  • Thks David.......I need A LOT more experience before I have a go at this........you have to know exactly what you are doing regarding the thickness of the gelcoat, resin, and laminates that will be applied on the other non-lip part of the hull. Then and only then you can you can determine the offset of the thin indexing board.

    I should have known there is no hocus-pocus way to do this………just practice.

      Horse-****! It's easy: indent the lip 3/32" to the hull master (the ideal wall thickness of r/c submarine hulls) and when you eventually lay up your other hull half in its tool you either grind the inside to a wall thickness of 3/32" or lay up the required strips of glass to achieve the desired wall thickness. With practice you quickly determine the weight and number of laminates to achieve that wall thickness.

      No sweat, Bart.

      Man! That VICTOR-3 is shaping up, pal.

            • When I say high detail, I actually mean HIGH DETAIL.

              Pictures were taken with the macro setting of the camera, dimensions are in mm.

              • Concentrating on the sail now. Test-fitting the SOKS and making the louvres fit.

                • Outstanding! How did you make the louvers? AND, did you cut the holes ans slots or cast them - I can't tell.

                    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                        Everything was done by the machine this time Scott....I only assembled the parts, made them fit.

                        The sail will be cast with the holes......louvers will be after fitted.....hatches and doors you must do yourself.

                        My idea behind it is that you can chose if you want certain pieces in open or in closed position......radar, periscopes,.....

                              LOL. Sorry, Tina, that your were subjected to this nasty, thoughtless, antagonistic, trolling perpetrated by your kit-assembling, robot-loving husband.

                              • I wonder how cheap those DLP based printers will get? Some can be had for under £200 now, although the resin is pricey. They do render superb detail.
