        Very kind of you, Stephen.

        (For those looking over our shoulders, Mr. Vick and I go way back to the Mount Trashmore days. Stephen is an exceptionally talented model builder in his own right).

        Here's some of his early work:

          Wow! Now that really takes me back! I still have the Trutta drawings (not the boat) been toying with the idea of converting a Revell Gato. My 1/96 model went to a gentleman named Chris Caffey in San Diego. Great times were had at Mt Trashmore!

            Stephen! You have drawings? May I get a copy?
            I too have been looking at converting a Revell Gato.
            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.

              Tom, I would be happy to do so. Drop me a PM reminder on or after the 20th ( I'm a teacher, and that's the start of winter break) I have a terrible memory and we're working finals.

                Sir, can I ask about the Alpha in your post here? The top rudder has a notch in it, what is the purpose?
                Thanks
                George

                  I assume its for the stern light. But, it's open, I've never seen this 'notch' with a clear lens in place.

                        David,
                        what is the inside diameter of your torpedo?
                        peace,

                          Pretty sure they're 0.5" ID. This allows for use as gas-powered or electric-powered variants.

                                Do you plan on having multiple variants? German, English and US WWII Common versions? From what I saw on line their diameters were the same BUT their lengths varied.
