    Here is a pic of the Su-7 I am building. Biggest molds I ever made. Fuselage is 73" long. Big big big jet. Got a turbine that is going into it. Puts out 21lbs of thrust @114,000 rpms. I have been building rc airplanes way before subs

    Mad woman? I think I dated one of those. I am going like crazy on all 3 boats. Got them lined up. Also working on my 1/9 Su-7 Fitter. That is a Russian jet for you bubble heads. Soon as I get some glass clothe ordered I will be glassing November.

    Focus Dude. You're all over the place like a mad woman's breakfast. Get my 1/96 November finished!

    Have a few winter scratch projects coming up. Have to make a 90+ mile one way drive to get some blue foam for the boat projects. So I dug out my old Foxtrot drawings. These are the only ones I have. Don't have any hull cross sections for it. Bought a real scale Foxtrot model with photo etched deck. I can enlarge the PE and use that to make the molds. Anyone have any Foxtrot drawings that show the hull cross sections? That one is going to be 1/72 so bring those pesky roo's on Scott

    Rabid kangaroos inbound. Best get your kevlar budgie smugglers on pronto. They always go for the crutch first (actual fact).

    Isn't that just the cutest little boat. One day it will grow to 1/72 scale. Not. OK started back on the teeny tiny November. Got 2 other boats going as well. 1/72 Thresher and a 1/72 George Washington boomer. Got some foam out back just itchin to be made into a scratch Ivan boat. Did some chrome dome scratching and figured a Yankee I out to do the trick. I am thinking 1/72 scale for that but me thinks Scott may sick his rabies infected roo's on me.

    Guys I have been so busy taking care of my 91 year old mom. That is a job in itself. Dave send me your address again if you can. I am going to send you all the 1/96 November stuff I have. You will have more time to finish them me. I am trying to finish up a huge scratch built Sukhoi Su-7 Fitter. Can't help it I am also a jet junky. I even got a killer deal on a real turbine engine for it. It is 4.25" in diameter and about 9" long. Thing puts out like 17+ pounds of thrust at about 114,000 rpm's. Once I get caught up on that 1/72 George Washington SSBN. Split mold so cheap ship down under. It is about the same length as the Delta. 1/72 Echo II after that. Any body interested in me doing a 1/72 Thresher? Don't want to step on anyone's toes on that one if y'all have that already covered

    Probably a noob question....why damn?

    Hello Tim. Concerning Ecco II you should perhaps start up a new page where we could publish what we have. I have some too.

    Bart you the man. Those are Echo II pics. Those are exactly that I need. Got some nice Russian Echo II drawings a Russian sent to me. They are good but where hard to make out the details on. The pics answer my questions. I know I am going to here the guys in here grumble but I just feel the need for a 1/72 Echo II. I will do a split mold so there will be a front and rear hull. Plus guys like hardrock/Terry won't have to pay $600.00 for shipping to down under.
    Dude; don't make me come up there. If you do it in 1/96 there will be no need for a split mould. When will come out of the darkness? 1/96 - you know it's right.
