    Yup, those are exactly the motors I used on another boat. For my Lotus I'll be using something very similar to these. They are excellent, simple, reliable, just turn on and off, no fuzzing around.

      Not much to report yet as I'm still sourcing parts. I did get all all the pump area printed and will do appendages when things warm up.
      Looking for 2 of the old school brass bulkhead seals for 1/8" shafts. Let me know if you have a "pair to spare".

        Putting some time in the 1:6 Delfin and hoping to have a running example by Subfest 2024. Going with dynamic diving, pressure box and a wet outrunner behind it. Stern planes and rudder for control with the possibility of "elevons" for a bit of bank. More to come as I start to slice up and join the hull halves. Model finish will be with the periscope and high viz test markings.

          Some images and redraws of the Delfin showing the test colors.

            Darrin,
            Great to see you back at it!
            Peace,
            Tom
            If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
