      Bob made one operational for a customer.

      RC Concept II

      I'm thinking stinking one myself, after a GATO of course, and after the other 7 are back online.

      Which means never

              I can't believe that nobody mentioned the shado/skydiver from UFO or was it the Thunderbirds?

                Johann Sauer built a half-size static study model -- was going to build a practical r/c submarine version, but I've hear nothing since (over ten years ago).

                      Mamas is an incredible talent. One of the finest model-builders I've had the pleasure of knowing. Here's some of his work on the Anderson STINGRAY:
