    Hi Subculture

    sadly too say no instructions . But I took your advice found a three bin socket on the side. I carefully tested it for possible meter response and found the correct 2 pins out of the 3 pins available to turn on the meter. I have it working now thanks for the help! Instructions would have helped its from china !

          I haven't popped into this forum for a while and have missed this build. I put my Typhoon build on hold about 2 years ago following a house move but this has given me itchy fingers to start on her again. Great work so far. You have way more bolts on the lid than me :)

                I'm glad you already built one so if I get In a jam you may be able to help out it looks nice .

                Are you planning to make a torpedo system. I notice the torpedo holes are cut out . I am in the process of gathering all my materials to make a water pressured missile lunch system with open and close missile hatches . I have a gentleman in Germany I finally contacted been over 2 months . So far he is the only one that i have found that has design a water pressurized missile lunch system that's on YouTube . So once im all done I am going to focus on that. I would like to have some type of battery propelled torpedo system but I need to get it built first .

                  I have a set of DM torpedos and they pretty close to 650mm torpedos in 1:100. Would love to see how you make those missiles.

                    yes I have the plans and the parts the biggest problem was finding out the mechanism witch took me 2 months to find out. That attaches to the bottom, of rocket, and you pressurized it from the top with a air pump, then it slides inside the chamber with a servo, which un locks the mechanism, that part stays inside at the bottom of missile chamber after it gets turned by servo . Then the rocket, shoots up and a way about 12 feet it will be cool system wants I get working on it.

                    The gentlemen made them all by hand in his work shop, from scratch I will have to make them from scratch myself . They release super easy from the servo which then releases all that water pressure all at once. Yes David Merriman is pretty smart he makes really cool stuff, like the Torpedo system.
                    here is a YouTube video of system im building this is not a kit .

                              more pictures of the control rods for the rear rudder and rear dive plans . keep in mind these are very close up pictures so it looks like a dirty mess but its not I just forgot to wash out the back end after grinding off access material before taking pictures.
