    end of assembly of the rear linkage​.I also painted the back of the typhoon because I don't see how to do it once diving planes are mounted​.

    I had the exact same issue with hull sections 5, 6 and 7 - in fact on two of them it didnt print anything at all for those parts. I just printed a bunch of replacement "bars" and glued them on. Don't know what slicer you're using but I used Chitubox initially. I never reprinted these sections sliced with Lychee so dont know if it was a slicer issue or not.

    Hi Frank,

    As I recall on my first build of the Typhoon using Nautilus Drydocks files, I had a similar situation! I just cleaned up that area and reattached with a quality medium CA. Worked out well for me!

    I wish I could have finished my Typhoon! I got about half way through the build and somehow (old age) lost my files. I really want to build the Typhoon, so I got a hold of Bob, and he sent me another set of files at no charge! Nautilus Drydocks (Bob & Jason) are really great when it comes to quality parts and go out of their way to help you with your submarine builds!

    Keep printing away with your Typhoon, and do not get discouraged with the process!

    Thank's.

    actually, I look at the polyester fillers used in car bodywork (two components with hardener)​
    I had a little sagging too.

    Bondo is a brand that is produced by 3M. Could be that it's only sold under that name in the US, but of course you can get 3M 2k polyester putty in Europe as well:



    Any other good qiality 2k polyester putty sold in your local hardware store or even better professional paint shop will do the job, too.
