  • This has been so much fun - both in the building and the watching. I thought that my bit was OK, but you have taken that pig's ear and made something wonderful out of it. I hope to see dozens of these things rocketing around ponds all over the world, terrifying ducks and amazing onlookers. Bravo!

      We got it done, Scott. I'll take that extra hull you provided, turn it into a master, make my own hull tool, and will start pooping these things out as a commercial kit. I'm going to charge enough to keep myself interested, and sell them through Nautilus Drydocks. We'll see who goes for the eventual retail price on these kits.

      A lot of guys promise to buy a product in development, but only a fraction pull the trigger once they see the price when the item become available.

          Not yet, Andy. I can't use the hard-water excuse owing to the availability of one indoor (Lynnhaven Dive Center) and one outdoor pool (Jewish Community Center). Just been busy with other paying work. No pay, no play!

            • By your box will you be known! Another great lesson by example; make the boat, make the box or bugger the boat some time later. Eery time She Who Must Be Obeyed goes crashing around the store room looking for something I'm reminded how important this simple rule is.

                Yeah. This used to be our living room:



                ..... and used to be the Cat's lay-about space.

                        That movie is near the top of the rotation in this house. To this day I examine the bottoms of all coffee cups strange to me.

                        I could never get Mr. Cat to drag a paw, no matter how I tried.

                          • Don't know if it's the right place to ask about, but How much for one of the 1/96 SEAWOLF with the complete sub driver installed?

                              I don't do turn-key work anymore. But, the man who does, and does it very well, is one Bob Martine. Just log onto the main page and contact him.
