    I fear that most of the work I have written up for Caswell and Martin has been lost. Oh, well. No big loss in this age of robot made models.

    Tears in rain, and all that morose happy horse****.

        Here is a combined Alpha Cabal by David Merriman.
        If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

          Thanks, Tom. You pulled that little gem out of purgatory.

            My pleasure, sir!
            Glad I saw the writing on the wall and saved this.

              Tom,

              Many thanks for the post. Dave, no matter what, your work will stand the test of time. I'll admit, there are some things that I will 3d model and print, but there are others that i will scratch build. There is still a place in this hobby for that creativity.

              Tim

                  I remember David had a post showing how he poured resin inside the Alfa's stern cone for the drive shaft support. He even a special reaming tool for making a recess for the outboard oilite bearing.
                  Make it simple, make strong, make it work!
