  • USS SHARK SSN-591: Refit Log 2019-05-01 (1:48 DeBoer Skipjack)

    Just a quick update......

    While I may not have Frank's Salerno's finesse when it comes to working with brass, I'm not completely lazy now that I have a "replicator".
    Still have some skill....

    New Vent Valve mechanism. 591 is no longer a "Pump" boat, and is once again a "Gas" boat but with LPB (Low Pressure Blower).
    Other than the finishing touches, the great 4 year test bed has provided many answers and will remain as is for the forseablr future.

    A complete walk through video is in the making.
