  • Bronco Type XIII 1/35

    I came across a Bronco Type XXIII 1/35 kit. I’m thinking of what diameter WTC to use. The beam is 3.4”. Has anyone put a 3.0” WTC in one?

      Thanks, I was hoping I could use a 3.0”. If the beam is 3.4” what am I missing?

        You're missing enough annular space in which to place foam.

          Ahh, well said. I take it the WTC is a 2.5”? It’s hard to estimate without a WTC and kit in hand. Thanks Much.

            Yes, that's a 2.5" SD. A 3" SD would be too big of a diameter.

              Thanks for posting the pics, your experience is invaluable. Your posts, advise and willingness to share has helped me and many other folks immensely. I have one of your old D&E Miniatures 3.5” WTCs. It has the adjustable ballast space and the conical wedge rotary valves. Still water tight and works perfectly. It’s a testament to you engineering and modeling skills. Thanks again.

                Damn, Minorcan;134295! You gotta eventually come up for air, right?

                On a serious note: Much appreciate the appreciation. Just passing on what others taught me. Glad to help. The end-game is to leave the field better than you found it.

                        Bottom line is, we are here to help you if you should need it.
                        If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
