        The Yankee is kind of infamous. The K 219 a Yankee I was the boat that had missiles blow up in the tubes and it sank off the coast of Bermuda in 1986.

          Let's do that one, Tim! I've got those Polar Bear drawings you sent me, to 1/72 and am ready to start cutting RenShape to get in on those appendages and propellers. We got good drawings there?

                  Dave we got the best drawings from Boris for the Yankee hands down. Boris lives in Severodvinsk, That is the City where the Russian submarine shipyard is. He has like a pipeline to get accurate drawings. Dave you think you can make a twin screw SD with those 1/72 drawings? It's a big boat huh?

                            No sweat, Tim. Try this SubDriver on for size!









                            When you are done with your hull master, chop off the stern and send it to me so I can outfit it with stern tubes, and the horizontal and vertical stabilizers, like I mentioned previously.

                              I am going to make split molds for the Yankee. Front and rears sections like i did the Delta III and IV molds. Easier to make the molds and easier to layup the hulls. Once I get the first hulls done I will just send you a complete boat. I was thinking I need a SD for my old SSY 1/48 type IX U-boat. I sent pics of it to Lee way back and he said it was one of his older boats before his gypsy crackhead glass layers. Have first layer on half the hull and 2 layers on the sail

                                Tim,

                                Any idea of the floodable volume needed in the ballast tank for that 1/48 Type-9 of yours? Give me that number and I'll put your SD together right away.

                                OK, you send me that YANKEE hull and I'll chop off its stern and do my magic, the end result will be a hollow cast resin cone with attached vertical and horizontal stabilizers and stern tubes with encapsulated propeller shaft bushings. At that time I'll complete the sail planes and other control surfaces, propellers and other detail items. From all that I produce tools. Once I have my copies in hand I'll forward you all the tooling so you can get that kit into production. Sound good?
