                  • Did you recognise your Kilo masts?

                    • That looks amazing! When can we expect video of it running?
                      If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                      • Not much fresh water around here Tom, and no pool at this house. I'm looking for alternatives to sea water at the moment. The boat is running an existing SD and is pretty much ready to go. I have to make a transport case for it however.

                        • Oh... yeah! Neat. But that stoplight ECM antenna, is that home-brew?

                          • Yep. Something that I made ages ago as an experiment. I've got an antenna farm in my bits box.
